A Texas hospital says a woman has given birth to five girls in what it believes is the first set of all-female quintuplets born in the US.
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas in Houston says it took four minutes for mother Danielle Busby to deliver the babies by Caesarean section on April 8.
Busby, her husband Adam and her eldest daughter, Blayke, welcomed Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige.
Dr Alexander Reiter delivered the babies – who were born premature at 28 weeks – with help from more than a dozen medical personnel.
The hospital says the babies are the first set of all-female quintuplets born in America.
The mother had an intra-uterine insemination for both her pregnancies.
