A mother has given birth to six babies in just nine minutes at a hospital in Texas.

Thelma Chiaka had two sets of twin boys and one set of twin girls on Friday morning between 4:50 am and 4:59 am

A statement released by the Women’s Hospital of Texas announced that the babies were healthy and all in a stable condition in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.

The babies weighed between 1lb 12oz to 2lb and 14oz.

All six were in stable condition while receiving care in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.

Thelma has named her baby daughters Zina and Zuriel. The boys names have not yet been revealed.

The odds of giving birth to sextuplets are estimated at one in 4.7 billion, the hospital said.

WOW!  Just WOW!

  • It’s not surprising it was so fast -I assume a c-section.


  • I remember the relief I felt with both of my pregnancies when the ultrasound showed just one baby. I would hate to have 6! Hope she has a lot of help.


  • I couldn’t get one out that fast. I hope she gets plenty of support.

    • Once the first one came out, the others probably just followed. Just think, there was also those cords to cut. Imagine if they all wake up and cry at the same time. You wouldn’t know which one to go to first. They’ll probably need to put labels of some kind on them to identify which baby they are holding if they are laying on the floor or their parents’ bed. I know one family who temporarily fostered identical twin girls. They had little bracelets as that was the only way they could tell which girl was which. Their son worked out which one cried while in their cots as one had a slightly deeper voice when she cried.


  • I’m assuming it was a caesarian though?


  • Wow, well done mumma ! Hope you receive many helping hands :)


  • Good on her! But six at once? This couldn’t be a natural conception. Who can afford to raise that many children in this day and age especially at once.


  • Congratulations to mum! Considering how many babies she had to deliver – amazing how quickly they all were born.
    What an amazing gift to be blessed with these babies. She definitely will have her hands full and hard times ahead, but can only say congratulations and wish her all the best.


  • I cant even imagine having carried them this long. Well done to this mumma


  • WOW ! what an impressive mum. She is going to have her hands full.


  • Sounds like these were conceived naturally?! Holy hell!! I think I’d die of shock if I found out I was having 6 babies!!!


  • How awesome is she!


  • Incredible. So happy for her. She made history! :-)


  • Oh my gosh! She is going to have her hands full! Glad all is well and wish her all the best for the future


  • Wow, 6 tiny newborns all at once, the mind boggles! One newborn can be overwhelming, I cannot imagine 6!!!!


  • She has a very busy few years ahead.
