Meet The Perkins Pack: The Sextuplets Who Are Growing Up Fast!

Imagine thinking you may never be able to have a child, only to end up being pregnant with six babies at once! That’s exactly what happened to Lauren Perkins and her husband David. At first, the couple had trouble conceiving, but with the help of intrauterine insemination, the Perkins’ lives changed forever.

The Texas family has shared their journey on their blog so we can follow along as the “Perkins Pack” turns six years old. Here’s what it’s like raising six kids of the same age.

They Were Hoping For Two Kids

Lauren Perkins had a very clear idea of how she wanted her life to play out when she married her husband David. “I was going to have two kids, two to three years apart, preferably a boy and a girl,” she told TODAY.

She added, “I think God was laughing at me, saying, ‘You have no idea what’s coming your way.'” Indeed, Lauren’s life plan didn’t work out as she had intended.
