She was surprised to learn she was pregnant again, this time with triplets. That's because Lewis is 47 and already has two older children.

MIAMI (AP) -" rel="nofollow - Sharon Lewis  was already a mother of two when she found out she was pregnant again. This time it was with triplets - at the age of 47, and without fertility treatments.

"Now the tears rolled because it was unexpected," she said Tuesday, moments before she was to take her three new children home, just in time for Mother's Day.

Lewis, a school cafeteria monitor with a 25-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son, said she was not looking to get pregnant again at her age. "But I was good. Once I grasped it, I was OK."

Dylan, Denere and Denard slept while Lewis and her doctors addressed the news media at" rel="nofollow - Holtz Children's Hospital  at the" rel="nofollow - University of Miami /" rel="nofollow - Jackson Memorial Medical Center . Each of the triplets weighed about 2 lbs. when born March 18. Since then, they have all been cared for at the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit.

Lewis developed high blood pressure during her pregnancy, so her doctors decided to deliver the triplets early, at 30 weeks. They said it was rare for a woman her age not only to get pregnant but also to have multiple births spontaneously, without hormone or fertility treatments.

"It was a miracle she got pregnant. It was a miracle she got three. And all of them are healthy and normal and she is fine," said Dr." rel="nofollow - Salih Y. Yasin , an obstetrician who specializes in high-risk pregnancies and delivering multiples, as he held a sleeping Denere in his arms. "Getting pregnant is 1 percent, but to be twins it's probably 1 percent of that. Triplets is 1 percent of 1 percent of that."

Lewis said she was looking forward to bonding with her babies at home.

"I felt that it was nobody but God that blessed my womb at 47. I do believe he brought me to it, he'll bring me through it," she said with a wide smile.

Lord I'm not interested in taking birth control till I'm 50. Somebody's getting snipped. Actually to be on the safe side both of us are going to have to do it.

Now you know that 14 y/o boy is leaving home as soon as he graduates from college. 3 babies to babysit?! I'd be trying to graduate early.LOL

Dylan...easy to say.

Denard sounds like Bernard. is this pronounced?

I don't think I would want to start over with babies at 47. Honestly, I'm probably would have aborted.
