Identical Triplets Puzzled To Learn DNA Doesn't Match - More Tests Uncover Troubling Truth

When you're part of a set of twins or triplets, you automatically assume you have the same ancestry. You share the same parents and other relatives.
So what happens when something happens to prove that otherwise? It can rock your world.
It was easy for one set of triplets to assume that their DNA would match up perfectly. But then shocking news was delivered.
In an attempt to see just how similar their DNA was, they decided to take Ancestry DNA Kits. However, they weren't the only ones curious to see the results.
Three different sets of triplets and quadruplets all took the test. One of the women in a set of triplets is the daughter-in-law of Dr. Phil McGraw and wife of executive producer of The Doctors, Jay.
Erica confidently said concerning their DNA tests that "I think they'll be the same." Erica was not the only one who felt like their DNA would match up and it only makes sense since identical triplets are the ones taking the tests.
All it took was a simple saliva sample that they sent away to be tested. When triplets Erica, Nicole and Jaclyn's results were in, they were invited on The Doctors to go over the news with Dr. Travis.
To their major surprise, their DNA did not match up. The sisters were left with more questions than answers, so they decided to investigate further.
They took the test again, this time with a different brand. It became clear that the problem was not with the triplets, but with the test kits themselves.
The researchers then ran the same tests on different sets of multiples and the results got even more confusing. It was mind boggling!
