They may not look very big individually, but Brittany and Jason Deen’s triplet boys tip the scales together at a whopping 20 pounds. This, according to reports, beats the current record in the Guinness Book of World Records set last year at 18 pounds, 11 ounces in Raleigh, North Carolina.
At birth, on November 8, Jenson weighed 5.5 pounds, Elliott, 7.3 and Sidney, 7.8.
The expectant parents who reside in Sacramento, California, didn’t know they were having triplets until they went in for an ultrasound at 12 weeks for their first peek at their “baby.”
They often say a pregnant mom is eating for two.
“I was eating for like 17!” Brittany said.
The triplets were naturally conceived and, according to Sutter Medical Center, that is a 1 in 8,000 occurrence.
