Meet America's First All-Female Set of Quintuplets!

Posted on

 

When Danielle and Adam Busby decided to try for one more baby, they had no idea they would end up with five!

“We did the exact same thing we did with our first daughter, Blayke (who’s 5): intrauterine insemination, “Adam says in the latest issue of PEOPLE. “Instead, we wound up with quints!”

Adam and Danielle star on TLC’s OutDaughtered, a reality show which follows their lives in Texas with daughter Blayke and 18-month old quintuplets Ava, Parker, Riley, Olivia and Hazel.

“It’s pretty hectic over here,” says Danielle who stays at home while Adam works. “I never get a break. Even when they nap, I have to start preparing dinner or wash clothes.”

While the couple says they’re finally getting into a groove when it comes to caring for their big family, trying to keep up with five toddlers is a never-ending challenge.

“We went from the crawling to walking, and now they’re on to climbing,” says Danielle. “They are everywhere — on the couches, the tables, whatever they can get their little arms and legs on.”

While Adam is outnumbered seven to one in the Busby house, he doesn’t mind being the odd man out.

“I was raised with two sisters, so all I knew were girls growing up,” he says. “If we had a boy, that could also complicate things — at least with girls they can all kind of share stuff, and that makes it a little easier.”

OutDaughtered airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
