A Texas mother gave birth to six kids at a Houston hospital within nine minutes of each other. Between 4:50 a.m. and 4:50 a.m Thelma Chiaka welcomed two sets of twin boys and one set of twin girls. It is 4:59 a.m. on March 15 at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, according to the hospital.
“The babies were born at weights ranging from one pound, 12 ounces and two pounds, 14 ounces,” hospital officials said in the statement. “They are in stable condition and will continue to receive care in the hospital’s advanced neonatal intensive care unit.”
According to the statement, the odds of producing sextuplets are one in 4.7 billion. According to the hospital, Chiaka has given her girls the names Zina and Zuriel, but it is unknown if she has given her sons the same names. Chiaka was shown smiling in a hospital bed with a relative, Ebere Ofor, and three physicians by her side in a photo published by the hospital.
