US Woman Got Knocked-Up HARD

An LA woman has made history, becoming only the second woman in recorded history to bear octuplets - eight children! The six boys and two girls were delivered by caesarean section, weighing between 2 and 31/2 lbs. and the deliveries all took place within five minutes!

All are said to be healthy, though three needed help breathing. The babies were nine weeks premature. They will all be kept in incubators for six weeks and the mother (whose identity has not been revealed) is planning on breast-feeding them all! Yeah, good luck with that.

The world's first live-born octuplets were delivered in Houston, TX in 1998. One died, but the other nine recently celebrated their 10th birthday(s).
