Lincolnshire gran, 55, gives birth to triplets

A Lincolnshire nurse has to change 24 nappies a day after she gave birth to triplets at the age of 55.

Sharon Cutts, a nurse at Boston Pilgrim hospital, spent over £22,000 on IVF treatments in the UK and Cyprus with her partner Stuart Reynolds, a factory worker 15 years her junior.

Sharon already has four grown up children and three grandchildren, and is believed to be the oldest mother of triplets in the UK.

The couple brought the babies home last week following their births in Nottingham on March 21.

Sharon had to spend 11 weeks in hospital to ensure the babies were delivered safely, after some problems with the pregnancy.

To look at her best after the birth, Sharon gave herself Botox injections before going into labour and sneaked out for hair extensions, according to The Sun, where the couple featured on the front page on Wednesday.

At one stage, doctors advised Sharon to consider aborting one of the babies due to risks at her age, but she refused.

The triplets were born by Caesarean section and each weighed between 4lbs and 5lbs.
