Amy Fabbrini and Eric Ziegler had quite the surprise when she gave birth to an unexpected child. But there was a bigger shock in store when the state of Oregon found out that they were starting a family. Indeed, the Redmond couple’s ability to parent was even called into question. And that was all down to the fact that the pair have below-average IQs.

Fabbrini, 31, and Ziegler, 38, have a combined IQ of 138: Ziegler’s IQ is 66, while Fabbrini’s is 72. By contrast, the average IQ ranges from 90 to 110. And although neither is in work at the moment, they do have their own home. Ziegler’s parents have a three-bedroom house that the couple live in – his mom and dad reside out of state.

Before meeting Ziegler, though, Fabbrini had twins with a previous partner. And after the divorce, she was granted shared custody of the boys. They spent their time with her at her parents’ home. However, Fabbrini’s mother looked after the twins on the whole. And following her mom’s passing from Alzheimer’s, Fabbrini was left to care for them without support.
