The world’s only nonuplets are “in perfect health” as they celebrate their first birthday,their father said.It was a squeeze to get everyone in the shot to mark the first birthday of the nine babies born to Halima Cissé, 27, from Mali — a feat now confirmed as a world record.They looked considerably more solid than when they were delivered in a flurry at 30 weeks, weighing between 1lb 2oz (500g) and 2lb 2oz, by a ten-strong team of doctors, 25 paramedics and 18 nurses. Two had not been spotted on scans so their parents and medical team were not braced for nonuplets.The lively group of five girls and four boys marked their birthday with a cake, their parents and a phalanx of nurses helping to blow candles out between nappy changes, their father Kader Arby said.
