A Riga mother has given birth to triplets, reports LETA. Eduards Vorslavans and Svitlana Mitkova were overjoyed after the arrival of three sons last week.

They have been given the names Artemijs, Ilja and Pavels. All three are in good shape, as is mother Svitlana, who expressed gratitude to the staff at Riga Maternity Hospital.

It’s the first time triplets have been born in Latvia this year.

Riga City Council has allocated 3,000 lats (4,280 euros) to the family as a congratulatory bonus.
