BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - It's a big Father's Day for an Alabama man whose wife gave birth to sextuplets.

More than 50 medical professionals helped deliver the six babies born Saturday to Heather and Mitchell Carroll at the Brookwood Medical Center in Birmingham.

The five girls and one boy were born after 28 weeks in the womb. Hospital officials say they are in stable condition in the neonatal intensive care unit. Dr. Bill McKenzie said their mother was also stable and resting well.
