Introducing America's Newest Sextuplets

Three boys and three girls! That’s SIX sets of tiny hands and toes for a happy Texas family!

Proud parents Laura and David Perkins have very big bundle of joy to celebrate. Let’s welcome babies Andrew, Ben, Levi, Allison, Caroline and Leah!

The babies were delivered by C-section April 23, with a team of 35 doctors, nurses and specialists to supervise the process. They’re seen breathing with ventilators in the photo because they were born 10 weeks premature, and will stay at the Texas Children’s Hospital for a few months till they’re big enough to leave. The TODAY show got a peek at the “six pack,” as doctors have affectionally called them.

Lauren wrote on her personal blog about meeting the babies: “I officially met them on Tuesday and got to touch them! I couldn’t believe they all fit inside my belly.”

According to their blog, the couple were trying to get pregnant for a year and a half. After rounds of fertility treatments, the couple were surprised with six beating hearts!

“You see your six babies and heartbeats and there’s no sign of problems,” she told TODAY. “And how do you choose?”

Congrats to the whole family!! Check out the video of the big family below!

Hope this family stays away from TLC. TLC ruins families.

Well now we know why Kate created a “stalker” on her twitter and sold the story to a tabloid…she now has some competition! Congrats to the new parents! Please keep their lives private and don’t sell their childhood out to the highest bidder. Your children will thank you one day!
