Default New owner, hedgehog gave birth under a shirt

Hi! I got a hedgie for Christmas and was told it was a boy... he gave birth so yeah I don't think he's a boy. I don't really don't know what to be because she gave birth under a shirt I left in her enclosure. I don't have a proper bed yet so I've been using my shirts. Now she's underneath it with her babies. Should I just leave them under there or remove and place a box over them? I've read about temperature and no bothering them for a couple weeks but I don't know what to do with the shirt.

Leave the shirt there and don't make any changes to the cage, or around the cage, except to remove the wheel. You won't be able to make any changes or clean the cage until the babies are weaned at 5-6 weeks of age.
