A Nigerian woman by the name Thelma Chiaka gave birth to Sextuplets in just 9 minutes at Women’s hospital of Texas, United States of America (USA).
She had two sets of twin’s boys and one set of twins girls delivered between between 4.59am and 4.59am according to Fox news.
She delivered at exactly 29 weeks and two days and the bundles of joy are all in good condition.
Now Thelma Chiaka is getting some much needed rest after delivering six babies in the span of nine minutes.
Chiaka has named her daughters Zina and Zuriel. She has not yet named the four boys.
The odds of giving birth to sextuplets is an astounding 1 in 4.7 billion.
It would be more likely to get struck by lightning twice (1 in 9 million) or even win the lottery (1 in 302 million).
Chiaka’s preganancy is certainly rare but she does not hold the record for most children born at a time.
Nadya Suleman, better known as ‘Octomom,’ became world famous when she gave birth to eight babies in January 2009, aged 33.
She is the only woman to have given birth to a set of octuplets to live past their first week.
