Lesbian Couple Have Quintuplets - With No Fertility Treatment

quintupletsA lesbian couple have become parents to quintuplets - without undergoing fertility treatment.

Melissa Keevers, 27, and Rosemary Nolan, 22, who already have a 18-month-old daughter, Lilly, have found themselves in the record books after their babies were born at odds of 60 million to one.

The proud couple have named the babies Charlie, Noah, Eireann, Evie and Abby.

Twenty-five hospital staff attended Melissa as she delivered the quins by Caesarean section at a hospital in Brisbane 26 weeks into her pregnancy.

The babies' biological father - who is said to be a 27-year-old American law student - has waived his rights to access to the children.

The couple have launched a website, 2 Ladies 6 Babies, to seek donations to help care for the quins.

Under Queensland law, only Melissa is recognised as the children's mother, with Rosemary Noland having no legal parental rights over the babies.
