On Thursday, Jessica Hicks gave birth to three boys and two girls at C.S. Mott Children's and Von Voigtlander Women's hospitals in Ann Arbor.
The quintuplets were doing well Friday in Mott's newborn intensive care unit, despite being born about eight weeks early.
"We were looking to try for one more child and God blessed us with five more instead," said Hicks, 28, who took fertility treatments. "There is always a chance of multiples when you get fertility treatments, but we thought twins, maybe triplets."
Before getting referred to the University of Michigan, Jessica and her husband, Robert Hicks, were told she was carrying quadruplets.
The quintuplets came in between 3 pounds, 7 ounces, and 4 pounds, 6 ounces. The Fenton-area couple already have a 3-year-old son, Colton.
