Mother Of Four Has Quintuplets


By KMVT News

Mesa, Arizona (CNN) - A Las Vegas couple - which already has four children - added five more bundles of joy to their family last week.

Thirty-three-year-old Evonne Derrico gave birth to quintuplets Friday at a hospital in Mesa, Arizona. Her husband calls it a blessing. The three girls and two boys are doing well.

Derrico and her husband named the babies Deniko, Dariz, Deonee, Daician and Daiten.

The couple already has a seven-year-old daughter, three-year-old son and one-year-old twin boys, all with first names that start with the letter "D."

The family temporarily moved to Arizona to get care from a multiple birth specialist. They plan to head back to Las Vegas once the babies are discharged from the hospital.
