Rome, Aug 21 : A 55-year-old Indian woman India has delivered identical quadruplets in the northern Italian city of Mantua, a local newspaper has reported.
According to gazzettadimantova.repubblica.it, the woman, who has lived in nearby Suzzara for 15 years, had gone home to India to be artificially inseminated after trying unsuccessfully in Italy.
"We have been waiting for this moment for 15 years,'' the babies' 38-year-old father Pabla Maghar Singh said.
"We are really very happy," he added.
The four boys, born a week ago, were named Manav, Manmeet, Roshan and Radveer.
They were born two months premature, weighing between 750 and 980 grams and are in incubators at the hospital, but are doing well, the report said.
The doctors who were a part of the miracle commended the woman's courage and added that she tackled everything very calmly, before and after the procedure.
The mother works for a cleaning business, while the father is a metal worker.
