37-year-old woman gives birth to quintuplets

A woman in Hawaii who, at one point, never thought she'd give birth is now a mother of quintuplets.

It was not long ago when 37-year old Marcie dela Cruz believed she would never give birth.

Two years ago, she gave birth to Makaio via IVF (in vitro fertilization). Wanting to give their little son a brother or sister, she and her husband, Raymond, 63, decided to go through the process again, and it worked.

Then she gave birth to four boys and a girl, the first ever set of quintuplets to ever survive in Hawaii.
