A pregnant mother welcomes a set of quintuplets and their family portrait is super stunning. The proud mum can be seen cuddling her five babies in swoon-worthy family portraits.
Perth resident Kim Tucci, 26, an Australian mother gave birth to quintuplets in January and she released a photo shoot of her unlikely new arrivals. It took just two minutes to give birth to her four daughters and one son, who were conceived naturally. Meet Allie, Beatrix, Keith, Penelope and Tiffany. Perth already has two kids and fell pregnant naturally (no IVF) with 5babies! She was offered to abort three of them so that at least two would have a better chance of survival. She declined – and brought all five thriving babies into the world.

A team of 50 doctors and nurses assisted with the planned caesarean and all of the children were born healthy.
The chance of conceiving quintuplets naturally is about one in 55 million. Mrs. Tucci’s story gained prominence through her Facebook page, Surprised by Five, where she recorded the details of her pregnancy.
“50 fingers 50 toes, 6 hearts beating at once. My body fought the toughest of battles to get five babies here safely,” Mrs. Tucci, 26, wrote when she posted the photos.
“Everything I did I did for them.”
