A mother has described her shock at giving birth to five babies last week.

Oksana Kobeletska went from being a mother-of-one to a mother-of-six after she gave birth to three boys and two girls via a c-section in Odessa, Ukraine on June 24th.

The mother told Reuters that she was "very shocked because I thought that (I was having) twins or something like that.

"Nobody in our family has ever had it. There was not a single case of that kind.

"Generally speaking, I didn't expect it and never anticipated it."

The couple named their new children Denis, Dariya, Vladislav, Oleksandra and David.
