Triplets Born 11 Years Apart

A triplet born 11 years apart sounds like the opening of a shaggy dog story, but that's what actually happened in Midland, England:

It's hardly surprising that Ryleigh Shepherd is the image of her 11-year-old twin sisters when they were babies. For despite being born in different centuries, the three were all conceived on the same day.

While the embryos of twins Megan and Bethany were implanted in their mother in 1998, Ryleigh’s was frozen for more than 11 years. [...] ‘When Ryleigh arrived she looked like both the girls did when they were born 11 years before,’ said their mother Lisa, 37. ‘It was uncanny.’

They may have been conceived at the same time, but they're still the equivalent of fraternal triplets. They are the result of three separate eggs and three separate sperm, so they are no more closely related than any other sisters. It's not like they somehow separated out one of a set of identical triplets.
