This has to be one tired mama.

Dubai, a Northern cheetah, gave birth to seven cubs at the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in March — the biggest litter to be born in the U.K.

The adorable cubs made their public debut last week, romping around their enclosure (and all over their mom).

“All seven are extremely playful but mum’s very patient with them all and is doing a great job of bringing them up,” said senior keeper Marie Brown.

That may come from experience. Two years ago, Dubai gave birth to five cubs, reported ITV News.
