The internet is just about ready to adopt these miracle IVF quintuplets - feel good reactions to make your day

The internet may not be a shining example of humanities finest, but not all the activity on social media involves intense sparring.

We recently published a story on a couple in their 40s who welcomed quintuplets after undergoing IVF treatment. The first-time parents had been childless for 18 years and the internet could not contain themselves. 

Some used their comments as a teaching moment (because, you know, quintuplets is how many babies again?), while others took the liberty of offering possible name choices to the couple. 

It seems even the hagglers aren't immune to a feel-good story. 

Here are a few of the reactions we loved:
