PHOENIX -- It was four times the joy at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center last week, as a Tucson couple welcomed quadruplets.

Meet the new arrivals: Drew, Cass, Audrey and Ava!  All four are healthy and doing well in the hospital's NICU.

Parents Brandon and Alicia Alston arrived in Phoenix during her 22nd week of pregnancy. The babies were born at 32 weeks.

The Alstons say they were shocked when they found out they were having quads, but say it was a great surprise.

"We had found out that Alicia just had a little case of endometriosis, and she had a small surgery. And after that they took very well, obviously. We got four!" says Brandon

The babies - two boy and two girls - were born between 8:27 and 8:28 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 26, following a pregnancy of 32 weeks.

The Alstons will return home to Tucson with their children once they have all been discharged from the NICU.

"I'm very excited and and I am very grateful for my little munchkins that we have now," says Alicia.

"It feels really good," says Brandon. "We just cant wait to get them home and spend that time with them, maybe spoil them a little bit."
