PHOENIX (AP) - A Utah couple is welcoming five new additions to their family.
Dignity Health spokeswoman Sara Baird said in a news release that Jamie Scott delivered quintuplets Wednesday at St. Joseph's hospital in Phoenix.
Jamie and husband Skyler, of St. George, have been documenting the pregnancy on Facebook.
They posted on the social media site that the three girls and two boys each weigh between 2 pounds and 2 pounds and 9 ounces.
29 weeks 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 We ended up removing our paper chain link around 1am because our babies decided they wanted to celebrate this day with us. We have 5 beautiful children in the NICU. All 5 babies were born this morning between 1:27am and 1:28am. They weigh between 2 lbs and 2lbs 9 oz. Jamie and all our cinco babies are doing well. We’ll share more details and photos when we can. Thank you for your love, support, faith, and prayers 💙❤️❤️❤️💙 #fivetwolove #29weekers
Their names are Lily, Violet, Daisy, Logan and Lincoln.
Baird says Jamie Scott was about 29 weeks along when she gave birth.
The couple also has two other sons, ages 12 and 7, and tried for five years to have another baby, with hopes of adding a girl to the family.
Now, the family of four has grown to a family of nine.
"I remember the first ultrasound," said Skyler. "Just going through and listening to the heartbeats."
