A Polish couple just became parents to a dozen children after mother Dominika Clarke gave birth to quintuplets on Sunday.

The Metro reports Dominika and the five newborns, three girls and two boys, all are doing well at Krakow University Hospital in Poland after their premature birth.

Their names are Charles Patrick, Henry James, Elizabeth May, Evangeline Rose and Arianna Daisy, and they were born at about seven months of pregnancy, according to the report.

“I feel great,” their mother said. “Much better than I thought. The children are resting. Their condition is stable. This is something extraordinary that is not given to everyone. Such a pregnancy occurs once in 52 million.”

The babies were born by cesarean section and their weights ranged from 3 pounds, 1 ounce to 1 pound, 9 ounces at birth, the family said.

Doctors told the Associated Press that all five siblings are progressing well; they currently are in incubators and receive breathing support.

Dominika and her husband, Vince, also have seven older children ranging in age from 12 to 10 months. During the last 10 weeks of her pregnancy, Dominika said she stayed in the hospital so doctors could monitor her and her unborn babies’ progress. At home, her husband took off work to care for their older children, according to the report.

Some might view parenting 12 young children as too overwhelming, but the Clarkes believe their large family is a blessing.

“If you have a system, a calm approach and a positive attitude, then it is possible to have a really cool life with such a large bunch of children,” Dominika said.
