(JACKSON, Miss.) — A Mississippi mother was expecting identical triplets in May, but when she gave birth early last week, she got a big surprise.
Doctors discovered another identical child, and Kimberly Fugate gave birth to identical quadruplets one day before her 42nd birthday.
Fugate, who says she did not take any fertility drugs, also has a 10-year-old daughter.
The newborns, Kristen, Kayleigh, Kelsey, and Kenleigh, are in intensive care at Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson. Fugate hopes to bring them home in early May.
