A Texas hospital has just witnessed a historic moment, after a woman gave birth to what is believed to be America's first all-female quintuplets.
The Woman's Hospital of Texas said it only took Danielle Busby four minutes to deliver her five babies --- Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige through a cesarean section last week. Busby's doctors said the quints, who were born premature at seven months, were all healthy and doing well.

However, Dr. Jayne Finkowski-Rivera, the medical director who assisted in the delivery, said the babies are receiving only modest breathing support.
Dr. Alexander Reiter was the one who delivered the babies, along with more than a dozen medical staff. Five medical teams were created, including seven board-certified neonatologists, who will provide care for the babies after their delivery.
Busby and her husband Adam happily wrote about the rare moment on their blog. The parents uploaded photos and videos the past months of her pregnancy.
Mr. and Mrs. Busby already had a daughter, Blayke, and both pregnancies were via intrauterine insemination.
The babies' birth weights ranged from two pounds to two pounds and six ounces. Mrs. Busby said having six babies was far from her imagination.
The Woman's Hospital of Texas had delivered 318 sets of twins and 16 sets of triplets in 2014.
Giving birth to quintuplets is extremely rare, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Data showed only 66 cases of quintuplets and other higher order births across the U.S. were recorded in 2013.
