 Staten Island Woman Gives Birth to Four Girls and One Boy
A Staten Island woman has given birth to quintuplets.

Jamie and her husband Kevin Ferrante, an operating engineer, welcomed four girls and one boy at Staten Island University Hospital.

"I'm still in shock even though I knew it was coming," the New York Daily News quoted Kevin, as telling the Daily News.

The first baby arrived at 1:28 a.m and the four others were born within three astonishing minutes.

"It was so quick I couldn't believe it," Kevin said.

"Before it started, it was over. The team over there at Staten Island Hospital was unbelievable," he added.

The healthy children - delivered by Caesarean section - are: Allesia Louise, 2 pounds; Amanda Frances, 1 pound, 8 ounces; Emily Ann, 2 pounds, 1 ounce; Matthew Sabatino, 2 pounds, 4-1/2 ounces; and Ella Lilliana, 1 pound, 15-1/2 ounces.
