Last summer, Australian mom Kim Tucci got the surprise of her life when she and her husband, who had already welcomed three children into the world, discovered they were expecting another five!
They had wanted just one more baby to "round off their little family," her grandmother said, and found they were expecting five. And, it wasn't the result of fertility treatments - it occurred naturally, a 1-in-60 million chance!
On January 28, 2016, the 26-year-old gave birth to their quintuplets, four girls and one boy: Tiffany, Penelope, Beatrix, Allie and Keith.
"We are very happy to announce the birth of our 5 beautiful babies, born on the 28th of January and just shy of 30 weeks," the proud mother of eight wrote on her Facebook page one day after the kids were born.
"We would like to say a big thank you to Dr. Jan Dickinson for looking after me and the babies with such love and care ... The babies and I are both doing very well, thank you for all your well wishes and support."
Photographer Erin Elizabeth shared the images of mom and babies on Facebook earlier this month, and they quickly became an Internet sensation.
"Months later, here she is with her gorgeous little babies...each one perfect and healthy as can be," she wrote. "Kim endured an extremely demanding pregnancy, never wavering in her strength and determination to bring these babies safely into the world. She is an inspiration, and it was an honor to photograph her journey."
Of course, raising eight kids, all under the age of nine, is no easy feat.
The Tucci family is in need of a car that can seat nine, as currently, just a visit to the doctor requires them to use three vehicles. Kim's grandmother, Denis, has launched a GoFundMe campaign to help them raise money.
"We're all really trying to help her achieve her goal of purchasing a van that fits her entire family — at the moment, they have to travel places in three separate cars!," Elizabeth said. "Any help they could get would be much appreciated."
If you're so inclined, you can make a contribution to the family at GoFundMe - currently, they've nearly reached their target of $40,000, with a total of $38,273 in donations.
