An Unforgettable Miracle: Ukrainian Woman Welcomes Quintuplets into the World
Oksana Kobeletskaya, a remarkable 37-year-old woman from Odessa, has become the proud mother of quintuplets—a true blessing for her and her husband. With their previous three-year-old daughter, Alice, already bringing joy to their lives, this family’s story is nothing short of amazing. Captured in these stunning photographs, witness the beauty of their growing family.
Born prematurely in the 31st week of pregnancy, the quintuplets arrived weighing between 2.4 and 3.9 pounds. During their time in the hospital, where they remained for the first month of their lives, a memorable photo shoot captured their precious moments.
Oksana, overwhelmed with joy, affectionately referred to her babies as “Five pearls,” as she shared their progress on Instagram. The proud parents wasted no time in naming their newborns on the very day they were born: Aleksandra, Dariya, Denis, Vladislav, and David.
One of the photos recreates a touching scene reminiscent of the Tucci family’s journey with their five children. Oksana proudly shared that Alice, their eldest, learned to count up to five, specially for her beloved brothers and sisters.
While the hospital staff marveled at this beautiful blessing, the couple admitted to feeling a mix of amazement and trepidation. Oksana, the 37-year-old Ukrainian mother, confessed, “It almost felt like a nightmare, as if I would wake up at any time. I mean, how would we manage to take care of so many children?”
When the quintuplets reached two months and six days old, they were finally able to leave the Reznik hospital. The first photographs of these precious twins now grace the hospital lobby, serving as a reminder of this extraordinary event.
Shortly after their discharge, the mayor of Odessa, Gennady Trukhanov, bestowed upon the young parents a generous gift—a warrant for a spacious 5-room apartment spanning 120 square meters.
Following their release from the hospital, a group of talented photographers organized another heartwarming photo shoot for the quintuplets. Yulia Guseva, the photographer behind these captivating images, expressed her surprise at how effortlessly the two-month-olds cooperated during the session. She shared, “Working with them was even easier than we expected. The children slept sweetly, and we captured a beautiful story of love and friendship between them and their parents—a story that undoubtedly began in their mother’s womb.”
To help distinguish the five siblings, colorful strings were tied to their hands. However, Oksana, the quintuplets’ mother, can effortlessly recognize each of her beloved children without any assistance. Through the Odessa Five blog, she lovingly describes the unique personalities and temperaments of each of her little ones.
As comments poured in beneath the photographs, one sentiment rang true: “This is the kind of situation where you asked for a brother or sister, and received five times the joy.”
The father of the quintuplets skillfully manages two multi-seat strollers at once, ensuring his children’s comfort and safety. As the quintuplets reach the five-month milestone, their family joyfully settles into their new, spacious apartment—a place they can now call home. Congratulations on this incredible new chapter in your lives!
