Mom Delivers World's Heaviest Triplets (VIDEO)

OMG 24

heaviest tripletsBig birthweight babies have a bad rap. Moms hear 12-pound baby, and they cringe. But a set of babies dubbed the world's heaviest triplets have left me appreciating just how lucky some of us are to never have worried about how much our babies weighed.

When Brittany and Jason Deen's three sons came into the world, the doctors added up their three birthweights. Together, they topped the Guinness record of 18 pounds, 11 ounces. Come on, make your guesses!

The triplets weighed a total of 20 pounds. Even!

That means that all three kids weighed in the "normal" birthweight range for singletons! Jenson weighed 5.5 pounds, Elliott weighed 7.3, and Sidney was 7.8.

Now consider that the average triplet is around 4 pounds.

Those two bigger boys? They are both bigger than my (very healthy) daughter was when she came out. And I remember being so worried about how much my child would weigh. I was worried that a big baby would make me tear (didn't happen), would hurt more ...

And here this woman is LUCKY to have had babies who were considered "big," at least for multiples. Certainly changes my perspective on big babies. How about you?

That's fantastic, they will be so much healthier and happier with a normal birth weight. Mom deserves a pat on the back!!

And I thought my twins were big. They were 7lbs 6oz and 8lbs 1oz and i was felt like my body was going to give out on me the last month of my pregnancy. 20lbs plus in just baby? My body aches for this woman

That is a lot of baby weight for triplets! My son weighed in at 11 lbs. 10 oz...born vaginally and in labor just 3 hrs at home and 3 hrs at the hospital.

Lord, I hope those babies are good like my first son and not buck wild like my youngest. I can't imagine having three of this little tiger. Whew! I would be drunk or dead.

Wow kudos to mom! I am currently in 37th week of twin pregnancy and at the last ultrasound when they estimate weight they were 6lbs and 5lbs 13oz. That was two weeks ago. I couldn't imagine lugging around what she did.
