Most people struggle giving birth to one baby, or even two, let alone sextuplets! And fair enough, giving birth is hard work. Really tough going. Us men don’t envy women at all. The Women’s Hospital of Texas shared a photo of new mom Thelma Chiaka after the birth, which soon went viral! You can understand why.

Did you know that the odds of having sextuplets are estimated at one in 4.7 billion? We were honored to welcome Thelma Chiaka's four sons and two daughters early this morning!

The three sets of twins were born between 4:50 and 4:59 am on March 15. Chiaka is now the proud mom of four boys and two girls. Each baby weighed just under two pounds, and they are all stable.

Chiaka decided to name her twin girls Zina and Zuriel but is still contemplating what to call her boys.

The odds of giving birth to sextuplets is 1 in 47 billion.

The record for the most babies given birth to at once is held by Nadya Suleman. The mom, is also known as “Octomom”, gave birth to, you guessed it, eight children. What’s more, this put her total to 14 kids to look after.
