The triplets’ mother Claire, who is a former nurse, has revealed that the couple was desperate for a sibling for three-year-old son William after a devastating miscarriage last June.

And now, she admits being blessed by bringing up three identical tots with hubby Paul.

The 33-year-old also revealed that she had to paint their fingernails to tell them apart.

“Now I have no problem telling them apart, but it was difficult in the early stages which is why I came up with the colour coding idea. I’d apply it once a week to ensure we always knew which was which,” she said.

“They are a wonderful gift, I love them all and I am blessed,” she added.
