A Miami mother says she was surprised to learn she was pregnant again, this time with triplets.
That’s because Sharon Lewis is 47 and already has two older children, a 25-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son.
Doctors say it’s rare for a woman her age to have conceived the babies naturally without fertility treatment.
The school cafeteria monitor wasn’t trying to become pregnant and thought it was impossible at her age when she was told she’d be giving birth to three baby boys.
Dylan, Denere and Denard were by delivered by c-section early — at 30 weeks — on March 18th. Doctors decided to deliver early because she developed high blood pressure.
Each of the babies weighed about two pounds at birth and are now closer to four pounds.
‘This was all a big surprise to me, but it was a wonderful surprise,’ Lewis said.
She said her older children can’t wait to have them home and she has lots of family to help.
The triplets were scheduled to leave the hospital on Tuesday after a press conference.
