ROME (AP) - A southern Italian woman has given birth to sextuplets in the first such case in Italy since 1997.

The ANSA news agency says the babies - boys Paolo and Maurizio, and girls Francesca Pia, Angelica, Annachiara and Serena - are in good condition. The babies each weighed between 610-800 grams (21.5-28.2 ounces, or 1.34-1.76 pounds)

They were born Sunday in the 27th week of pregnancy to 32-year-old Carmela Oliva in Benevento, near Naples.

Father Pino Mele told state-run RAI television he hopes the sextuplets' grandparents help out, saying they're the first grandchildren in the family.

ANSA says it's the first case of sextuplets in Italy since 1997.
