Dilini Rasangika Shyamanthi, the mother of the quintuplets said she and her husband considered the five babies as the greatest gift they had received.

“They were not a burden during pregnancy and my husband and I would not consider them as a burden in the future too,” she said.

“Dr Kapila Gunawardena informed me at the outset when I was one and half months pregnant that I will give birth to quintuplets. I was afraid. My husband gave me all the love and protection Because of that, I spent the period during the pregnancy in a happy mood,”she said.

The quintuplets’ father Shilantha Wijepala who was overjoyed thanked the Kandy General Hospital staff for the support.

Hospital authorities said the five babies are kept in an incubator and are in good health.

A 29 - year-old woman in Kegalle gave birth to quintuplets, three boys and two girls, at the Kandy General Hospital yesterday morning, Kandy General Hospital Director Dr W G A Dissanayake said.

Hospital authorities said the five babies have been kept in an incubator and are in good health.

This is said to be the second set of quintuplets born in Sri Lanka. A Presidential Security Division officer’s wife gave birth to quintuplets on an earlier occasion.

According to Kandy Hospital sources, the quintuplets’ father is a Central Provincial Council member.

Surgeon Prof Kamal Gunawardena was the gynaecologist on both occasions, Health Ministry sources said.
