|Most new mums have their hands full with just one baby to care for, but a woman in America has found herself with eight little bundles of joy after giving birth to octuplets yesterday.
The woman, who has asked to remain unnamed, delivered six boys and two girls who weighed between one pound, eight ounces (0.680 kilograms) and three pounds, four ounces (1.474 kilograms) at a hospital in California.
Her team of 46 medical staff from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Centre at the hospital in the Los Angeles suburb of Bellflower had only expected seven babies and had scheduled a Caesarean section.
