Seven teachers at one elementary school in Kansas were pregnant at the same time last month, expecting eight total babies.

The school only has 15 classroom teachers.

Two of those teachers at Oak Street Elementary School in Goddard, Kansas have since given birth to healthy girls, which were born less than 24 hours apart.

One of the five remaining pregnant teachers is expecting twins.

USD 265-Oak Street Elementary said on Facebook:

The Oak Street kindergarten classes of 2024-2025 are growing by the day! We can't wait to meet the little ones of these seven teachers!

The woman made headlines after the suburban Witchita school district posted photos of the expecting teachers on Facebook.

The expecting educators caught the eye of Ellen DeGeneres, who invited them all to appear on her show for a Mother's Day segment.

DeGeneres told the teachers to take deep breaths, telling them:

Nobody have a baby right now

The school is using substitute teachers to fill the vacancies for when the women will be on maternity leave.

The pregnancies are spread out with the last three mothers-to-be due in October.

The kids will likely all attend Oak Street Elementary at the same time in a few years.

Nine pregnant nurses at one Maine hospital made news last month after similar pictures were posted to social media.
