Nation's First All-Female Quintuplets Born

This week the nation's first set of all-female quintuplets were born to one lucky Texas mom. They were all delivered during a 4-minute cesarian section at 28 weeks and need only minor breathing support. Other than that, they're doing great.

The quints are named Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige. Mom and dad Danielle and Adam Busby also have a 3-year-old daughter, Blayke.

"Blayke got to come meet them, which was so cute," said mom Danielle. "She had her 'Big Sister' shirt on."

The chance of having quintuplets is very low. Only 66 sets of five or more babies were born in 2013, the year for which the latest data is available. Compare that with 130,000 sets of twins born that same year.

One in about 60 million births are quintuplets, according to one report. And for all five for the babies to be girls? The odds are even lower.
