DALLAS (AP) — A North Texas woman has given birth to premature quintuplets and doctors say the three girls and two boys are doing well.

Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas on Monday announced Opalyn Santos-Clark of Allen gave birth June 17 via cesarean section.

She and her husband, Rex K. Clark, welcome Vianca Quing at 2 pounds 14 ounces, Alessandra Roxy at 1 pound 12 ounces, Perrin Rex at 2 pounds 5 ounces, Noah Steve at 2 pounds 4 ounces and Scarlett Jessie at 2 pounds 15 ounces.

The babies were delivered several weeks early, at 31 weeks.

A statement from Parkland says Perrin Rex required surgery June 24 for a bowel issue but continues his recovery.

Santos-Clark, who's recovering from the C-section, says she and her husband are "happy, grateful and relieved."
