PHOENIX – A couple welcomed not one but four newborns this week.

A set of quadruplets were born Monday at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix to the Morrisett Family.

The mom gave birth to one girl, Emma Elizabeth, and three boys: Kaden Zachary, Lane Dalston and Bennett Grant.

The family moved temporarily from Kansas to Phoenix in order to receive medical care from perinatologist Dr. John Elliott. The doctor explains, "For a mom of four babies to get to 34 weeks without having to go into the hospital for bed rest prior to the pregnancy is quite a success. We have been privileged to care for a number of mothers expecting quadruplets and other high-order multiples at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center and are very pleased at this outcome."

The mother and four babies are all doing well. They made their first public appearance Tuesday morning with their parents and their 5-year-old big brother Cullen.

The babies are now being cared for by neonatology specialisits from the Phoenix Children's Hospital. The Morrisett's will likely remain in Phoenix for another month or so before returning to Kansas.
