5-Month-Old Identical Quadruplets Pay Visit To Relatives In Tyler

Chasing behind an 18-month-old baby boy can be pretty hectic. But, imagine adding four sisters to that mix. That's the story of one Houston woman, who's in Tyler visiting relatives. According to her doctor, there are less than 50 identical quadruplets in recorded history.

Shelley Breedlove, an identical twin herself, gave birth to Daphne, Chloe, Bonnie, and Adelle at the end of March. "I'd told my husband I wanted twins," said Breedlove. But, she got more than she bargained for. "We went to the hospital to have the ultrasound done and she said one, two, three, this is babies I'm counting. And we're like ha ha ha."

The ultra sound technician didn't see the fourth until a few weeks later. "At 12 weeks, they did another ultrasound and then they found a fourth baby. After that, I was afraid of having another ultrasound because they just kept having kids," she said with a laugh.

Just keeping track of which baby is which, can be a challenge in itself. "My mom brought me one the other day and said, 'Guess which one this is?' And I said, 'Bonnie.' She said, 'Nope. It's Daphne.'"

Despite the long hours taking care of the four girls and their 18- month old brother, Breedlove says they're the best thing that ever happened to her. "They are a lot of hard work but they are definitely worth it."

Breedlove says she does not plan on having any more children. Her church has recruited about 100 people to help her take care of the quadruplets. She has up to 16 volunteers helping her on a daily basis.
