Texas Mom Gives Birth To 5 Baby Girls, U.S.’ First-Ever All Female Quintuplets

HOUSTON — A Houston hospital says a woman has given birth to five babies, which, reports say, is the first-ever set of all-female quintuplets born in the United States, also the first since 1969.

The Woman’s Hospital of Texas says it took four minutes for mother Danielle Busby to deliver the babies by C-section last week. Busby, her husband Adam and her eldest daughter, Blayke, welcomed Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige.

Dr. Alexander Reiter delivered the babies with help from more than a dozen medical personnel. Seven board-certified neonatologists were among the five medical teams assembled to provide care after the babies’ arrival.

The hospital says the mother had an intrauterine insemination for both of her pregnancies. Last year, the hospital delivered 318 sets of twins and 16 sets of triplets.
