Congratulations to the brave and strong-hearted mother who gave birth today to six boys and two girls weighing between 1.8 pounds and 3.4 pounds, according to the Associated Press. It all happened between 10:43 a.m. to 10:48 a.m. Yes, that's five minutes, eight babies. Apparently, this is the second time in history live octuplets have been born. Congrats, again, to the family and we hope everyone stays healthy!
