HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston hospital says a woman has delivered five girls in what it believes is the first set of all-female quintuplets born in the U.S.

The Woman’s Hospital of Texas say Danielle Busby had her babies by cesarean section April 8. Doctors say the children, born premature at 28 weeks, were doing well on Wednesday.

Dr. Jayne Finkowski-Rivera says the babies are only requiring modest help breathing.

Busby, her husband Adam and her eldest daughter, Blayke, welcomed Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige. Their birth weights ranged from 2 pounds, to 2 pounds 6 ounces.

The family already had one daughter.

Danielle Busby says she never thought she would have six kids — much less six girls. She had intrauterine insemination for both pregnancies.
