An Australian mother has five new bundles of joy who are keeping her on her toes.
Photos of mom Kim Tucci and her quintuplets are getting a lot of attention online. According to CCTV, the 26-year-old mother gave birth naturally to four girls and one boy in January.
All five babies are healthy and weighed just over a kilogram (2.2 pounds) at birth. They stayed in a hospital for six weeks until they were strong enough to come home.
The Tuccis already have two daughters and a 9-year-old son.
According to CCTV, the parents change about 350 diapers every week, but despite all the hard work, they say it’s the happiest time of their lives.
