(Newser) – She's been dubbed Nonomom, of course: A woman in northeastern Mexico is pregnant with nine babies, reports Reuters, citing local media. Karla Vanessa Perez of Coahuila state is due to give birth on May 20 to six girls and three boys, according to MSNBC. Few details are out yet, but Perez did have some kind of fertility treatment to get pregnant. Gawker notes that two deliveries of nonuplets (neither in the US) are in the books, though none of the babies lived more than a week.

"It's very early to think of names for the babies," Perez told state broadcaster Notimex. "First I hope that everything goes well."
