Georgia Couple Welcomes Quadruplets Just in Time for Christmas: 'My 4 Precious Miracle Babies'
Kortney and Justin Miller welcomed four new little ones weeks earlier than expected
Christmas came early for one Georgia couple — 11 weeks early to be exact.
Kortney and Justin Miller, of Newnan, welcomed quadruplets on Dec. 16, just in time for Christmas, when Kortney went in for her 29-week appointment.
Babies Brandon, Brayden, Bryant, Kenlee made their grand entrances just minutes apart, with Piedmont Newnan Hospital Dr. Heather Turner calling the births “very special early Christmas presents,” according to Today.
Miller 23, told Today that although twins and triplets run in her family, she was a bit surprised when her OB-GYN broke the news seven weeks into her pregnancy.
“I never thought there would be four,” Miller said. “My mother was with me, and she said, ‘You’re carrying on the tradition!’ ”
When Miller reached 15 weeks, the hospital assembled a “quad squad” to prepare for the delivery of the first set of quadruplets ever to be born at the hospital.
“Once we recognized it was a pregnancy that was meant to be, there was a lot of preparation to do,” Turner told Today.
“Any time we anticipate a pre-term delivery, there is a lot of coordination across the labor and delivery unit as well as the hospital to lay the groundwork so everything can be as smooth as possible.”
The big day came early. Miller took to the hospital for a prenatal visit to learn that she was dilated to 3 centimeters.
“We’re going to go have babies!” Turner told the expectant mother then.

Miller delivered the little ones by caesarean section — Turner told Today that the births went “amazingly well” — and the babies will remain in the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit until they grow stronger.
Kortney has started a GoFundMe page for the family to cover expenses as Justin is on unpaid paternity leave. She uploaded a photo of the infants to the fundraising page, writing, “My 4 precious miracle babies.”
