BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — 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.
Obamas celebrate Father’s Day with ice cream
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and his daughters celebrated a sweet Father’s Day, paying a visit to a Georgetown ice cream parlor before the girls left with their mother on a trip to Africa.
Obama and his daughters, Sasha and Malia, took a Sunday afternoon drive to the Thomas Sweet café, about 20 blocks from the White House. The store’s menu includes ice cream, frozen yogurt and homemade fudge.
Sasha and Malia were scheduled to travel with first lady Michelle Obama, their grandmother, Marian Robinson, and cousins Leslie and Avery Robinson on a weeklong trek in Africa.
