A Queens couple spent seven years raising their only child, a son — until New York's second-ever sextuplets arrived.

The four boys and two girls were born earlier this month to 31-year-old Digna Carpio (CAR'-peeoh) and her thirty-six-year-old husband Victor, a maintenance worker with the city's Housing Authority.

The sextuplets were born at Manhattan's Mount Sinai Medical Center, weighing between 11/2 and 2 pounds each. Till their parents name them, they're known as babies A, B, C, D, E and F.

With their 7-year-old son, the family suddenly has to care for seven children.

City Council member Tony Avella started a collection for baby supplies from his Queens office.

New York's only other sextuplets, the Boniellos, were born in 1997.
