You might think that it would be overwhelming to welcome a baby into the world, and it can be a source of great happiness. For this couple in the Czech Republic, however, there is more than just one reason why they should be thankful.
The couple, Alexandra and Antonin, already had one child already and were so excited when they learned a new addition was on its way!
They soon found out that this new addition was actually twins, and since both parents had a history of twins in their families already, they will be carrying on the families tradition.
While in the process of making preparations for their new child, Alexandra and Antonin, who are both from Milovice (a town in the Czech Republic) learned from their doctor that instead of one child, they would be having a set of twins.
Upon hearing of this latest development, the couple, filled with excitement, began to make preparations for the new additions that will be made to the family.
Little did they know that this particular surprise was just a side portion compared with the main meal they were about to be served.
The next time they visited for scans, the doctors had even more incredible news for the pair.
This time, the ultrasound had shown something none of them could have predicted – something, in fact, that no parent imagines they could possibly ever hear.
It turned out Alexandra wasn’t expecting twins. The next thing the doctor said was something that they never even imagined they’d hear. The doctor showed them the ultrasound again and when they examined it, the doctor broke the news to them plainly; the couple wasn’t expecting one baby or two… but 5 bundles of joy!
When it was finally time for Alexandra to give birth, the hospital provided twice the normal amount of delivery staff to cater for this delivery. To put things into perspective, the chances of a female falling pregnant with quintuplets is one in several million.
When it was all said and done, the young couple welcomed 5 new members into their family; 4 baby boys and 1 baby girl.
The boys were named Daniel, Alex, Michael, and Martin while the lovely couple named their beautiful girl Tereza. All babies were born in a healthy state, and there has been no single health issue reported from the mother and her new children.
After several months, here are they now,
Today, it’s been a few years since Alexandra’s unique pregnancy, but it’s lost nothing of its magic. What can you say?
