Meet the Parents of First Set of All-Girl Quintuplets Born in U.S.
A rapidly growing Texas family recently welcomed the first set of all-girl quintuplets born in the United States.
The girls, born at Women's Hospital of Texas by cesarean section April 8, are the first all-girl quintuplets known to have been born anywhere in the world since 1969.
Proud parents Danielle and Adam Busby, accompanied by their older daughter, Blake, spoke to Uma Pemmaraju on "America's News Headquarters" to share their amazing story.
Danielle revealed Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige are all doing great and are expected to stay at the hospital for another five to ten weeks.
Adam said that gives him and his wife a little time to work the details out and create a schedule for how they will care for a half-dozen little girls.
What was your reaction when you realized you were going to have five babies? Pemmaraju asked.
"I didn't cry at first. I literally could not stop laughing, because I just felt that this doesn't happen to me," Danielle said. "It took me a couple days and then it hit me. And then I cried."
Adam said it's been an overwhelmingly positive response from family, friends, their church and their community.
Danielle said that the biggest challenge they face will be giving all the girls plenty of attention and love.
"I absolutely adore every one so much," Danielle said. "Five little babies [are] going to take a lot of time, so just making sure that everyone gets their individual love and attention that they each need."
