Sextuplet Parents: 'It's Very Overwhelming'
Lauren Perkins, 28, and David Perkins, 29, had trouble conceiving, which led to fertility treatment and the surprise of expecting six babies. The couple said they did consider selective reduction, but could not bring themselves to do it. The sextuplets were born to the Pearland couple on April 23 at the Texas Children's Pavilion for Women. The three boys and three girls weighed between 1.10 pounds to 2.15 pounds at birth.
