Houston: Defying odds of one in 4.7 billion, a Houston woman gave birth to sextuplets at The Woman's Hospital of Texas in the United States. Reportedly, the woman named Thelma Chiaka delivered two sets of twin boys and one set of twin girls between 4:50 am and 4:59 am local time Friday.
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas shared the good news on Facebook and stated that the Thelma Chiaka is doing well. The babies are stable too and were born at weights ranging from 1 pound 12 ounces to 2 pounds 14 ounces, informed the hospital.
The babies are currently receiving care at the hospital's advanced neonatal intensive care unit. While Thelma still has to decide on the names for the four boys, she has christened her girls Zina and Zuriel.
