A Las Vegas family of six nearly doubled in size in less than five minutes after ushering in a set of quintupletsEvonne Derrico, 33, her two newborn boys and three baby girls were recovering Wednesday at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, Ariz.  The parents did NOT use fertility drugs.

The father, Deon Derrico, says that everyone is doing well.

Deniko (b), Dariz (b), Deonee (g), Daician (g), and Daiten (g) each weigh less than 3 pounds and were being cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit.

They're joining an already-full house that included the Derricos' seven-year-old daughter, Dai, a three-year-old son, Deon Jr, and one-year-old twin boys, Dallas and Denver.  

(If this blog was "Letter of the Day", today's letter would be D.)

  1. If Denver and Dallas were triplets, they could have named the third one Detroit.
