A woman has delivered five girls in what is believed to be the first set of all-female quintuplets born in the United States, a hospital in Texas said.
The Woman's Hospital of Texas in Houston says Danielle Busby had her babies by caesarean section on April 8. Doctors say the children, born prematurely at 28 weeks, were doing well today.
Dr Jayne Finkowski-Rivera says the babies are only requiring modest help breathing.
Busby, her husband Adam and her eldest daughter, Blayke, welcomed Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige. Their birth weights ranged from 2lbs, to 2lbs 6oz.
Danielle Busby says she never thought she would have six children - much less six girls. She had IVF for both pregnancies.
