With twins, you might get [[UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn a boy and]] [[HalfIdenticalTwins a girl]]. But triplets are almost always the same sex. That's what the media wants people to think. [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins Usually, they will be all identical]], but sometimes, they are all fraternal for easy recognition. In RealLife, identical triplets are always all boys or all girls (for obvious reasons), but most triplets are two identical and one fraternal and only have a fifty-fifty chance of all being the same sex. All-fraternal triplets only have a one-in-four chance.
