(KSDK) — Their plan was to have one more baby, but a Missouri family came home from the hospital Tuesday night with three.
Jessica Kennedy gave birth to identical triplets earlier this month at Missouri Baptist Medical Center. Identical triplets are so rare, doctors don’t keep organized statistics on those cases.
Jessica and Ben, her husband, already have two older children. They conceived the triplets naturally and were stunned to learn during Jessica’s pregnancy that they were expecting not one child, but three. All three babies are boys: Reed, Knox, and Finn Kennedy.
As they prepared to head home Tuesday night, Ben and Jessica noted the overwhelming responsibility in front of them.
“We’re hoping for the best, obviously, but were pretty terrified of what’s about to come our way,” she said with a laugh. “So I don’t know, we’ll just have to play it by ear and see how it goes.”
