Imagine going from a party of six to a party of 11 over the course of a morning.

That happened for a Las Vegas mom who gave birth to a healthy set of quintuplets. The babies are named Deniko, Dariz, Deonee, Daician and Daiten. They will join their older siblings who are ages 7, 3 and 1 (a set of twins). And guess what letter their names begin with? That's right, "D."

Evonne Derrico, 33, gave birth to three girls and two boys Friday morning after carrying them for eight months. She carried them about four weeks longer than the national average for quints, reports the Associated Press.

Evonne's husband Deon Derrico, 42, said the couple did not use fertility drugs to conceive.
