Look out, Kate Gosselin!

Australian mom Kim Tucci—who we told you about earlier this week—gave birth to her five babies on Thursday morning at 8:20 a.m., instantly going from mom of three to mom of EIGHT!

The beautiful 26-year-old—who recently posed for a stunning beach photo shoot with photographer Elizabeth Hoskins—posted the following birth announcement on the Surprised by Five Facebook page she created to update followers about her incredibly rare (and all-natural!) pregnancy:

"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

Penelope, 2 pounds 8 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."

"This is such wonderful news!!!" added another. "Congrats on your beautiful five babies!! Looking forward to seeing photos!!"

So are we!

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
