Mum has triplets — with one child 7½ years older than the others.

Helen Baker, 40, needed nine rounds of private IVF treatment before she and hubby Oliver had son Hugo in 2011.

A tenth treatment cycle last year using the same stored embryos saw son Monty and daughter Coco born two months ago, shares The Sun.

“I never thought I wouldn’t be able to have kids so it was very upsetting when I found out,” said Helen.

“We are one of thousands of couples in the UK left devastated after being told conceiving naturally wasn’t an option so when they told us IVF was the only option I put my heart and soul into the process.

“But the drawback has not stopped us from building the family which we have always dreamed of for years.”

The siblings were conceived at the same time with the same eggs and sperm, so are triplets despite their age gap.

Helen said: “I couldn’t believe it. Many couples aren’t successful having one baby.”

“I feel like I have defied all of the odds possible.”

Congratulations to them x
