Sorry, Santa. The stork beat you to the Snyder household this Christmas.
Congressman Vic Snyder announces that his wife, the Rev. Betsy Singleton Snyder, gave birth today to three baby boys — Aubrey, Wyatt and Sullivan. The babies weighed 3 pounds, 15 ounces; 4 pounds, 10 ounces; and 4 pounds, 15 ounces, respectively. They join the Snyders’ 2-year-old son, Penn.
The Democrat from Little Rock reports the triplets were delivered this morning by Caesarian section and are expected to remain in the hospital for about three weeks before going home.
Rep. Vic Snyder, D-Little Rock, won’t be at the Democratic convention in Denver this week. He’s staying in Little Rock to be with his wife, the Rev. Betsy Singleton, who is pregnant with triplets.
Snyder said by phone Monday morning that Singleton is not having complications, but he thought it would be best to stay with her. She isn’t supposed to be doing any heavy lifting, Snyder said.
The couple also has a 2-year-old son.
Singleton is more disappointed than Snyder about not making the trip, he said. Four years ago when Barack Obama gave the convention keynote speech, Singleton predicted he would be president. She was eager to see him accept the Democratic nomination, Snyder said.
“It would be better for her and our 2-year-old and both our anxieties if we stayed here,” Snyder said.
The congressman said he’s “pretty sure” the triplets are all boys, based on previous ultrasound pictures. The couple should know with certainity the sexes of the triplets after a Sept. 4 doctor’s appointment.
“We’ll start working on names on Sept. 4,” he said.
Two of the triplets will be identical, he said. The triplets are likely to be born around the first of the year.
