Kimberly and Vaughn Tucci were only trying for a third child, for a boy in fact after two girls, but nature surprised them big time when Kim gave birth to healthy, adorable and extremely rare quintuplets.
The Tucci's who live in Warnbro already had two young daughters together, while Kim herself had a nine-year-old son from previous marriage.
With the the quintuplets, the couple has now eight children, seven of whom are under the age of five.
With so many babies, it is not so hard to imagine the troubles the mother has been going through.
The couple changes about 350 dirty nappies each week and feeds each infant eight times a day. The parents have reportedly said that they are a little 'overwhelmed' but they are also 'happiest they have ever been in their life'.
In her blog, Kim describes her 'surprise' babies as: "50 fingers 50 toes, 6 hearts beating at once. My body fought the toughest of battles to get five babies here safely. Everything I did I did for them."
The proud duo has just recently shared the first ever professional photos of their adorable babies, and the mother's call for help quickly went viral.
Taken by photographer Erin Elizabeth, the images became a hit on Kim's blog and Ms Elizabeth's social media accounts.
The photos showed 26-year-old mum Mrs. Tucci cradling her five babies wrapped up in soft pastel blankets, while lying together against a gray carpet.
The heartwarming photos and Kim's personal stories on her Facebook blog "Surprised With Five" has since helped the family be heard.
The family has additionally launched a fundraising page to help the family purchase a van so that they can travel together.
Tucci's grandmother, Denise Waddell wrote on the GoFundMe page that Kim and her husband are "desperate for any financial assistance," as they were paying rent and they did not have finances to buy a home, let alone LDV G10, the cheapest car in Australia that is big enough to fit their family.
The GoFundMe page was set up by Wadell less than a month ago, and it has so far raised nearly $33,000 of its $40,000 goal.
The family from Perth, Australia welcomed their quintuplets on January 28, four girls and one boy: Keith, Ali, Penelope, Tiffany and Beatrix.
The family told media that they did not use IVF (in vitro fertilisation) to concieve, which adds to the 'surprise' factor. Doctors say that naturally conceiving quintuplets without IVF or fertility drugs is extremely rare, about one in 55 million to be exact.
