A Queens couple spent seven years raising their only child, a son - until New York's second-ever sextuplets arrived.
The four boys and two girls were born earlier this month to 31-year-old Digna Carpio and her thirty-six-year-old husband Victor, a maintenance worker with the city's Housing Authority, according to the Daily News.
The sextuplets were born at Manhattan's Mount Sinai Medical Center, weighing between 1.5 and 2 pounds (0.68 and 0.9 kilogram) each. Till their parents name them, they're known as babies A, B, C, D, E and F.

City Council member Tony Avella started a collection for baby supplies from his Queens office.
