SALISBURY, Md. - A local hospital had a rare delivery this holiday season, triplets! Peninsula Regional Medical Center says on Sunday, December 29th, they delivered three babies to a Crisfield couple.

Amber Cruey says she, and her husband Robert, found out that she was carrying three babies at her 5-month sonogram, and hasn't used any fertility drugs. "I definitely felt a little different than I had in my past pregnancies, but I still never thought it would be triplets."

Hospital officials say Cruey carried the babies to nearly full term, 35 weeks and five days, and all were born very healthy; Abel was 6 pounds, Lydia was 5 pounds 9 ounces, and Angel was 5 pounds 4 ounces. The new babies will be joining two siblings, a 7-year-old brother, and a 5-year-old sister.

PRMC says this is their first triple birth since October 2012, and that they had a blueprint laid out for a seamless birth. All necessary staff was reported on call for the last two weeks to make sure that everyone was there for both mother and babies.

"I wasn't expecting to have three, but it is very exciting, and they are all beautiful," Cruey said.
