Sacramento, CA (KCRA/CNN) - A couple in California may have had record breaking triplets.
The three babies weighed a total of 20 pounds at birth.
Now, their mom and dad are submitting paperwork to the people who run the Guinness Book of World Records. The current record is just over 18 pounds for triplets.
"It's kind of exciting. It makes me feel like kind of justified in, I guess, all that weight gain was for something. You know, all that back pain. Well, it's not that I was being lazy or less than a trooper, I guess there was a reason why I was feeling that way," said Brittany Deen, mother of the triplets.
Deen ate a 6,000 calorie a day diet to feed her boys while they developed, and carried them for 37 weeks.
