Miami woman surprised with triplets at 47

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED May 7, 2014

Sharon Lewis, 47, has unexpectedly given birth to healthy triplets in Miami. Lewis was not taking fertility treatments, so the multiple births at her age has shocked specialists.

“It’s a miracle she got pregnant. She had three. They are fine and she is fine,” Doctor Salih Yasin tells CBS Miami. "Lewis’s doctors said Lewis is a statistical phenomenon. The chances of getting pregnant after the age of 44 with IVF is 1.2 percent so this is a miracle times three."

Babies Dylan, Denere and Denard were born at 30 weeks on March 18 and released on May 6 from Holtz Children's Hospital at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center.
