An Australian mom who made headlines earlier this year with her stunning pregnancy photos has since given birth to quintuplets. Now four months later, the new mom has released baby photos of her adorable brood.
Kim Tucci and her husband Vaughn, from Perth, welcomed four daughters and a son in January.
According to BBC, their birth only took an impressive two minutes. Baby Ali, Penelope, Tiffany, Beatrix and Keith were born via Caesarean section with the help of 50 doctors and nurses. All infants were born healthy and, of course, too cute for words.
The odds of conceiving quintuplets naturally are one in 55 million, making Tucci’s birth story quite spectacular. Not only that, but on the Facebook page for her blog, the mom revealed that she and her husband originally thought they were expecting twins.
Tucci, who already had three kids, found out she was carrying five babies during a routine ultrasound.
“I was moved to another machine for a clearer view and had the head doctor come in and double check the findings. She started to count ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE!!! Did I hear that correctly?? FIVE??” the mom explained on Facebook.
“My legs start to shake uncontrollably and all I can do is laugh. Time to call my husband. When I called him from the ultrasound room I don't think he believed me at first, he quickly drove down to the ultrasound place. I could see the excitement in his face he told me, ‘We can do this.’”
Since doctors told the expectant mom that her babies could arrive as early as 28 weeks, Tucci and her husband decided to do a special maternity photoshoot four weeks prior. Australian photographer Erin Elizabeth Hoskins took the stunning images and also shot photos of the infants once they were born.
Now that the Tucci family has quickly grown from five to 10, the family has to take three vehicles if they want to go anywhere. As a result, the Tuccis have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for a van big enough to carry the whole brood. As of Tuesday, they have raised over $32,900 of their $40,000 goal.
Despite the difficult pregnancy, the happy mom-of-eight told Australia’s “60 Minutes,” “No-one thought I could do it, and I did, I showed everyone in my life.”
On Facebook, the mom also wrote, “Everything I did, I did for them.”
