PHOENIX, Ariz. (News4Utah) – A St. George couple does a bit of show-and-tell with their newly born quintuplets!
Jamie and Skylar Scott held their first news conference Friday.
They were at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix where the babies were born. It is a hospital known for its success in multiple births.
Their doctors say the night the babies arrived a team of more than 20 doctors, nurses and medical support were there to provide immediate care.
The couple showed off the babies and talked about seeing them for the first time.
“Little Lilly is the first baby I met, and I looked at her. They’re small, but they’re beautiful and they’re perfect. The second I saw Lilly, we just knew everything would be OK,” said Skyler Scott, dad.
The Scotts already have two children at home. Each of the new babies weigh between two and three pounds, but their doctors say they are all healthy and progressing well.
They should be in the hospital for another five weeks.
