When your family of three becomes a family of eight overnight, chances are you’re probably not thinking about having any more kids for a while.
For Danielle Busby, star of TLC’s OutDaughtered, that’s exactly the case, and in an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s episode, the mom of the only all-girl quintuplets in the country – who is also mom to 5-year-old daughter Blayke – has one very specific request for her husband Adam: “Get that snipped!”
In the scene, the couple is sitting in their living room taking care of the girls when Adam, 33, starts joking about how baby Riley is “definitely ruining my mojo tonight.”
“Before we had the quints, Adam and I used to have more time together,” Danielle tells the camera. “We had Blayke, and we still went on dates. A babysitter was just for one kid, it wasn’t like it was super expensive. Our life now is something we would never change, but it’s definitely hard to get time for us.”
Back on the couch, Adam tells Danielle, 32, that he feels like “we can’t do anything in here.”
“I can’t spend any time with you, it’s awkward,” he said, pointing to the row of babies sleeping in the room.
“What do you mean?” Danielle asks.
“If I get a little …” Adam says, raising his eyebrows suggestively.
“There ain’t no getting ‘a little,’ ” Danielle responds. “You’ve got to snip something before you get with something!”
Addressing the camera, Danielle explains she wants Adam to have a vasectomy.
“Why haven’t you done it yet?” she asks him, smiling while Adam squirms uncomfortably.
“I mean, I’m just a little nervous about it!” he says.
“That’s scary for a guy!” he continues.
“Please. I’ve had like, six kids for you,” Danielle says. “You can’t do one thing for me?”
Adam explains he’s not used to going to the doctor, but Danielle doesn’t back down: “So make this the ultimate doctor’s appointment. This is the best one to go to.”
“I don’t think Danielle is sympathetic at all as far as how I feel,” Adam tells the camera. “Talking about getting me fixed – it almost sounds like what you would do to a dog!”
As for Danielle? She’s not having it.
“Adam – you want this, you’ve got to get that snipped,” she says. “No if, ands or buts.”
