This 25-Year-Old Mom Thought She Was Having One Baby And Ended Up With Five

By

Imagine the stress of going into labor two months early when you're expecting one baby. Now, multiply that by five.

New mom Manita Kumar is the ultimate trooper after giving birth to five tiny baby girls at a hospital in Ambikapur, India, when she was expecting to deliver just one.

According to Times of India, Kumar's husband said he and his wife felt "extremely blessed" to have all five children, considering they had a son two years before who passed away shortly after childbirth. All five of their newborns weigh between 2 and 3 pounds and are currently being monitored nonstop in the ICU.

Still, you think you'd be able to feel five babies inside of you, right? Apparently not. According to Times of India, the couple hadn't been able to afford an ultrasound during this pregnancy, and throughout the term, Kumar felt perfectly healthy.

Now, with mounting medical bills and four of the babies suffering from jaundice, the District Administration of Ambikapur says they will help the family by providing financial aid.

In the meantime, Kumar and her husband have named the baby girls Jiya, Jjanv, Jyoti, Jigayasa and Janya, though they admit to getting them confused sometimes.

That's not surprising considering they are all equally adorable.
