ETX mom delivers quintuplets
Dallas, Texas (KTVT) — A Texas family of three is now a family of eight after a proud mom in Dallas delivers quintuplets.
A beaming mother and emotional father, Michelle and Steve Seals, talk for the first time about their quintuplets born Tuesday at Baylor Universal Medical Center.
The couple from Maud, Texas near Texarkana allowed cameras to document the births. One by one, the four girls and a boy, born at 29 weeks, were brought into the receiving room.
"They're so precious, they're tiny. I just love it. I thought I'd be scared because of all the machines and tubes but I just love it. I can't wait to get my hands on them," said the mother.
The new dad was just as amazed.
"I stayed and watched every minute of it, and it was truly, truly amazing."
Mrs. Seals says she took medication to help with her pregnancy, which gave her a 10% chance of having twins.
"We went from two to four then to six, but one didn't make it, so we went down to five.we were shocked. I don't even know if there are words to express how we felt."
The first grade teacher says they have a lot to learn, but know family and friends will help. Doctors say they'll keep the babies in the hospital for about seven or eight weeks before sending them home.
