Giving birth to just one baby at a time is enough for any woman to go through, but SIX?


The three boys and three girls were born a few weeks premature Monday at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, where their doctors say all six -- and their tired mother -- are in stable condition and doing fine.

The infants ranged in weight from 1 pound, 10 ounces to 2 pounds, 15 ounces. They are currently in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Their mother -- Lauren Perkins -- had been getting fertility treatments for a year and a half before she got pregnant last summer.
