37-year-old Oksana Kobeletskaya from Odessa had surprised Ukraine by giving birth to 5 babies on July 24th, 2016 in city maternity centre. A birth of quintuplets is believed to be a unique case for Ukraine. Five babies at once: two girls and three boys. By this time, she and her husband already had a three-year-old daughter, Alice.
She and her husband discovered the surprising fact during the first ultrasound check. After an easy pregnancy she successfully delivered two girls and three boys via c-section. The babies were born in the 31st week of pregnancy. Their weight ranged from 2.4 pounds to 3.9 pounds. Thus, now they are parents of 6 kids.
The couple had given names to their babies the same day they were born: Aleksandra, Dariya, Denis, Vladislav and David. Happy parents were presented with a 5 bedroom apartment from Odessa city officials after they welcomed their five new arrivals. Proud parents to five new born babies have shared heart-warming photos of the quintuplets for the first time.
Photographer Julia Guseva shared her emotions on Instagram:” Denis, Vlad, David, Sasha and Dasha pleasantly surprised us, because in their 2 months it was easier to work with them than we expected – kids slept sweetly, and we have created a wonderful story of love and friendship, which, I am sure began in a mother’s tummy for them and their parents.”
On the hands of the kids, colored strings are tied so that parents can distinguish them from each other. However, the mother of the quintuplets can do without hints. In the Odessa Five blog, she talks in detail about the character and temperament of each of them.
As they write in the comments to the photo, this is “the case when you asked for a brother or sister, but received five times more.”
The father of the twins is easily managed with two multi-seat strollers at once. The twins turned five months old, and the family moved into a new, large apartment. Congratulations on your new home!
