Multiple Births Parenting Unusual Baby Stories

St. Louis Couple Welcomes Quintuplets

Apparently 5 is the new 2 because for the third time this month a U.S. couple has welcomed a set of quintuplets! 

After a long struggle with infertility, Beth and Jim Glass of south St. Louis are now the parents of five tiny babies. 

As with most couples who have had mega-multiples, The Glass’ were shocked to find out that 5 embryos had taken. At six weeks, doctors said they thought she was pregnant with twins, but when they listened again at seven weeks heard not two – but five. 

Beth was put on bedrest in early June to ensure a successful pregnancy and was induced today after getting to 33 weeks. 

According to the hospital, the babies and mom are doing well. 

In Birth order, the 3 boys and 2 girls weighed: 

  • Abigale Elizabeth – 3 pounds, 4 ounces 
  • Luke Mitchel – 3 pounds, 1 ounce 
  • Evan Michael – 3 pounds 
  • Brady Quinn – 3 pounds, 12 ounces 
  • Sydney Elise – 3 pounds, 2 ounces
