Kim Tucci, 26, of Perth, Australia, and her husband, Vaughan, are already parents to two daughters, Aiva, now four, and Indiana, two. And Tucci also has a nine-year-old son, Kurt, from a previous relationship. But earlier this year, she wanted to try again for another child.
“Just one more? I want to try for a boy,” she pleaded with her husband, after looking over newborn pictures of the couple's daughters, Tucci told Woman's Day Australia. "Vaughn was happy with any gender, but I really wanted a boy for him."
First, she was told she might be having twins--but then doctors revealed that there were actually FIVE babies in there.
“Congratulations, it’s quintuplets!” the sonographer told her.
Having natural quintuplets--no fertility drugs or IVF was used--is extremely rare, with a one-in-55-million chance. The couple realizes how lucky they are, while also being excited and nervous about the big arrival, slated for April 2016.
“It’s a huge responsibility and I have days where I’m very anxious. My biggest concern is delivering all of my babies alive," says the mom.
