It official! There is a quintuplet baby boom happening.
We reported on Friday that Ron and Kathy Blatt welcomed 4 girls and a boy at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center last week.
Now we find out that Congratulations are in order for Lauren and Aaron Gray on their 3 boys and 2 girls born on May 5th. The Grey Quints arrived via c-section at 32 weeks 5 days gestation and are comprised of an extremely rare double set of identical twins plus one.
Each baby was a good size at birth and is breathing independently. Two of the babies are doing so well that they are already bottle feeding!
At delivery the five babies weighed:
- Baby A is Joel Joseph (4lbs 1oz)
- Baby B is Nathan Joshua (4lbs 60z)
- Baby C is Oliver John (4lbs 4oz)
- Baby D is Ava Charlotte (3lbs 3oz)
- Baby E is Lila Catherine (4lbs 2oz)
Indianapolis couple Paula and Jamson also welcomed a set of quintuplets this month. All five babies, 2 boys and 3 girls, arrived via c-section on May 1st. Paula was able to carry the babies 29 weeks 5 days, which is amazing for a multiple pregnancy.
- Baby A – Brayden Jamson 2lbs 5oz
- Baby B – Ariel Marie 2lbs 12oz
- Baby C – Addison Catalina 2lbs 3oz
- Baby D – Micah Joe 2lbs 4oz
- Baby E – Gabriella Isabel – 1lb 15oz
