Seeing double? Texas high school sets record for number of twins, triplets

March 3, 2011 at 11:03 AM ET

Fun story of the day: One Texas high school has set a Guinness Book record for the most number of multiple-birth kids in a single class. Ten pairs of twins, and a set of triplets in the junior class! Even the Gosselins can't beat that.

And it doesn't end there. J.J. Pearce High School, in Richardson, Texas, has 32 sets of twins among its roughly 2,000 students.

Wonder how long their record will stand? As women become mothers later in life, many more are using fertility drugs and in-vitro fertilization to get pregnant, which often leads to multiples. The more the merrier -- though we stand in awe of parents of twins and triplets. One at a time is challenging enough!
