"We are very happy to announce the birth of our five beautiful babies, born on the 28th of January and just shy of 30 weeks. 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. I was very lucky to have an amazing medical team supporting me. Thank you for giving me an exceptional birth! The babies and I are both doing very well, thank you for all your well wishes and support."

Here's the breakdown of the all the baby names and weights:

Keith, 2 pounds 12 ounces
Alli, 2 pounds 10 ounces
Beatrix, 2 pounds 10 ounces
Tiffany, 2 pounds 9 ounces

So exciting!!

The Facebook post announncing the birth of the quintuplets has already been liked more than 35,000 times, and close to 3,000 well wishers have stopped by to leave their congratualtions in the comments section.

"Congratulations on your new arrivals," wrote one. "And bloody well done on hanging in to 30 weeks, it must have been incredibly difficult."
