A lesbian couple in Australia are the proud parents of five newborns, who were conceived with the help of an American sperm donor.
Melissa Keevers gave birth to two boys and three girls by cesarean section in a Brisbane hospital in January, and the babies were first introduced to the public Sunday. The quintuplets, who were not conceived via IVF, were three months premature and weighed less than two pounds, but Keevers's partner, Rosemary Nolan, said the couple weren't worried about the infants, whom they named Noah, Charlie, Eireann, Evie, and Abby.
The infants join older sister Lily, 18 months, who was fathered by the same sperm donor, a 27-year-old law student, who has waived any rights to the children.
Keevers and Nolan have been together for more than three years.
