DALLAS - A Northeast Texas woman has given birth to quintuplets at a Dallas hospital.

The Texarkana Gazette reports that Michelle Seals of Maud had the four girls and one boy Tuesday afternoon at Baylor University Medical Center via cesarean section. The children's grandmother, Carole Pearce, says her daughter and all five babies are doing well.

Officials at Baylor University Medical Center said it took nearly 2 dozen people to help deliver the babies. (Watch behind-the-scenes video above)

Steven Seals says he and his wife have names picked out for the quintuplets but will have to decide what name fits which baby.

The Seals also have a 2-year-old son.
