“A Miracle Has Happened”: Mother Gives Birth To Quintuplets — Adds to Her SEVEN Other Children
“We had a greater chance of winning the lottery!”
A happy couple welcomed a whopping FIVE babies at a Polish hospital just before Valentine’s Day, adding to their already large family.
Dominika Clarke gave birth to the quintuplets in The University Hospital in Krakow (Szpital Uniwersytecki w Krakowie), one of the most well-known medical facilities in Poland.
For those keeping scores at home, the odds of having natural quintuplets are 1 in 55,000,000 — a true miracle, indeed.

“We were planning to have an eighth child but there turned out to be more!” the glowing mom told reporters at the hospital alongside her proud husband Vince. The Clarkes added to their already large family of seven children, ranging in age from ten months to 12 years.
“We (literally) had a greater chance of winning the lottery!” exclaimed the new-dad of twelve Vince.
The children – three girls and two boys – were named Evangeline Rose, Arianna Daisy, Elizabeth May, Henry James, and Charles Patrick.
Clarke said she felt “better than expected” after welcoming the five miracle wee ones. She has been a patient in the Krakow hospital for the past ten weeks because of the possibility of complications. During Clarke’s time in the hospital, her husband Vince was tasked with looking after their seven children at home in Puchacza in the city of Lublin, Poland.
“If you have a system, a calm approach, and a positive attitude, then it is possible to have a really cool life with such a large bunch of children,” Clarke exclaimed at a press conference held at the hospital.
The quintuplets were delivered by Cesarean section prematurely at 29 weeks. The children each weighed between 710 and 1,400 grams and were put in incubators and on respiratory support with doctors confirming they are all doing fine, given their premature birth.
The head doctor at the University Hospital says all babies and mother are doing well, all of whom are expected to be discharged from the hospital without a hitch.
