PRAGUE —

A 23-year-old Czech woman has given birth to quintuplets for the first time in the Czech Republic.

Officials at Prague's Institute for the Care of Mother and Child say four boys - Deniel, Michael, Alex and Martin - and a girl - Terezka - were born by cesarean section on Sunday.

Zbynek Stranak, chief doctor at the neonatal section of the institute says the birth took place "without any complications."

Stranak says that Alexandra Kinova and her five babies have been placed at an intensive care unit. He says the babies who were naturally conceived have a 95-percent chance to grow up healthy.

The father was present at the birth.

Kinova who is from Milovice, a town located northeast of Prague, already had a son.
