This is Kimberly Tucci, an Australian mother of two and soon to be FIVE more.
Yup, she’s having quintuplets. This is her at 25 weeks looking like an actual goddess.
“It’s hard to believe there are six people in this photo!” Erin Hoskins, the photographer, wroteon Facebook.
“We were cutting it a bit close with timing, as Kim was due to be hospitalized at any point,” Hoskins told BuzzFeed. “But the stars aligned and we lucked out with Kim still able to move around with relative ease in front of an epically beautiful Perth sunset. She was just radiant for this session. Despite her shy nature, she held herself like a queen, and was an absolute pleasure to shoot. I’m so looking forward to her newborn session in a few months time.”
After nearly a year of trying to get pregnant with her third and final child, Tucci became pregnant at the end of July. This photo was taken at just 11 weeks.
At her first ultrasound, the sonographer spotted multiple gestation sacks. Five, to be exact.
She also recently announced that she will be having four girls and one boy.
With nausea, body pain, itchiness, stretch marks, frequent urination, and difficulty sleeping and eating, Tucci’s pregnancy has been anything but easy. But all five babies are healthy, and Tucci remains positive.
“Is it all worth it?” asked Tucci. “Yes!!! I will keep pushing through.”
BuzzFeed has reached out to Tucci for comment.
UPDATE: Tucci gave birth on Jan. 28th, at just shy of 30 weeks. She, and all five babies, are all doing well.
