They're so cute you just want to eat 'em up. You have no choice but to love almost 1-year-old quintuplets Reece, Tessa, Owen, Miles and Corinne Plauché, whose proud mama, Sarah Plauché of Lake Charles, decked them out in adorbs Hawaiian style overalls designed by OshKosh B'gosh for the Bad Pants fashion show held at Texas Children's Pavilion for Women on Thursday.

The Plauchés made headlines last September with their kids the first quintuplets born in Houston last year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 41 babies nationwide were born as part of a set of five or more in 2011, the most recent year from which stats are available.

Gaudy couture was on trend at the quirky event that spotlighted the Texas Children's multiples program while serving as a kickoff to a major annual fundraiser that benefits the Texas Children's Newborn Center. The 16th Annual Bad Pants Open Golf Tournament, set for Oct. 9 at Clubs of Kingwood, has raised more than $3.5 million since its inception.

Sashaying along at the private gathering were media personalities, including mom-to-be Casey Curry of KTRK Ch. 13, Chita Johnson and Mia Gradney of KHOU Ch. 11, Melissa Wilson of Fox 26 and Adam Clanton of SportsTalk 790 AM.
