The five babies were born on Jan. 28. So sweet!🥰🥰🥰
Tucci, 26, gave birth to the four girls and one boy on Jan. 28.
“We are very happy to announce the birth of our 5 beautiful babies, born on the 28th of January and just shy of 30 weeks,” Tucci wrote on her Facebook page one day after the kids were born. “We would like to say a big thank you to Dr. Jan Dickinson for looking after me and the babies with such love and care … The babies and I are both doing very well, thank you for all your well wishes and support.”
“50 fingers 50 toes, 6 hearts beating at once. My body fought the toughest of battles to get five babies here safely. Everything I did I did for them,” she wrote on one post.
Names of five:
Tiffany at 1,170 grams (about 2.5 pounds)
Penelope at 1,160 g (about 2.5 pounds)
Beatrix at 1,210 g (about 2.6 pounds)
Allie at 1,200 g (about 2.6 pounds)
Keith at 1,269 g (about 2.7 pounds)
Doctors had given her the choice of saving two babies and giving up on the other three, as they had feared there would be serious health risks to Ms. Tucci and her unborn children.
“After my initial ultrasound, I was told I could consider the selection method to give 2 babies the best chance in life… I watched a YouTube video on the procedure and I cried, I could never do that!” Ms. Tucci said.
“Was I selfish for not giving two the chance of 100% survival?? All I know is that I already love them, and with every heartbeat, I hear, I connect with them more.”
