A 17-year-old mother from Derby has defied medical expectations by bringing her triplets home from hospital early.
The babies are now back home in Mackworth
Carlie Roberts' three sons Bradley, Alfie and Scott Junior were born nine weeks prematurely on 4 September.
But despite nursing staff saying it might take several more weeks, the babies are now at home in Mackworth.
Ms Roberts also has a 15-month-old son, Harley, and lives with her partner Scott Handford, 24, who has two sons from a previous relationship.
The triplets were born by Caesarean section at Derby City General weighing 3lb 2oz, 3lb 7.5oz and 3lb 8oz, and medical staff expected them to be allowed home in November.
Being a mother-of-four at 17 has brought Carlie Roberts plenty of publicity - not all of it complimentary.
She said of her critics: "It's got nothing to do with them. At the end of the day they don't know me.
"And with Harley, yeah, it was an accident, but once we started the family, obviously we finished it!"
