The babies are “doing well,” the hospital said in a statement. They remain at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond, where the couple helps care for the kids.  The hospital said the family and the facility would not provide any more information on the birth.Dr. Russell Moores, the medical director of the Children Hospital of Richmond’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit called the delivery “an amazing medical accomplishment that would not be possible without the outstanding coordination of our obstetrics and neonatal teams.”

The Taiwos are the first to give birth to sextuplets at the hospitals. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recorded 4 million live births last year. Just 24 were quintuplets or more.Dad was happy with the family’s treatment.”We are far from home but the medical team is our family,” Adeboye said. “That is what got us this far.”Ajibola’s desire is for her children to pay it all forward.”I hope for the smallest of my six children to grow up and say, ‘I was so small, and look at me now,'” she said. “I want my kids (to) come back to VCU and study and learn to care for others with the same people who cared for me and my family.”
