PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida couple welcomed a triple bundle of joy into their lives Friday, and their proud father said these baby girls are the best Father's Day gift he could have ever asked for.

Miami Gardens residents Marlon and Dianna Bustos said they had been trying to have children for 13 years. Their dream finally became a reality when Dianna gave birth to three baby girls. "It's a miracle," she said. "I still can't believe it."

"I feel like I'm still dreaming," the new mother continued. "I still can't accept that they're mine, and they're here, and it's our babies."

Marlon said his daughters' birth happened faster than he had anticipated. "We went in at 12 o'clock, and they were born at 12:44, 45 and 46," he said.

The triplets were born at Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines, just in time for Father's Day. "It's amazing, a miracle, everything I could ever ask for, all in one," said Marlon.

Dianna delivered the babies at 36 weeks. They weighed in at 4 to 5 pounds each and went straight to the hospital's nursery. "They melt your heart immediately," said Marlon. "You can already tell by their cries which one is which, I mean, things that you never thought you'd be able to do, it just comes to you."

Miami Heat Dancers, teddy bears in place, Marlon said his daughters are already fans of the South Florida basketball team. The couple spent Sunday night watching Game 5 of the NBA Finals, which pitted the Heat against the San Antonio Spurs. "They already knew that we're big Heat fans, and no matter what the Heat do, we're going to still be Heat fans," said Marlon before the game's outcome was known. "Even if they don't 3-peat, we already did."

The couple will be able to take the triplets home on Monday.
