SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A Phoenix family went from a family of three to a family of seven in just one day.

Kylie Szafranski gave birth to quadruplets at HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center on Saturday.

The quads are three boys and one girl. Their names are Emery, Damon, Gideon and Theo.

Emery was born at 2 lbs. 6oz., Damon weighed 3 lbs. 1.7 oz. at birth, Gideon was at 3 lbs. and Theo weighed in at 2 lbs. 12 oz.

All of them were around 15 to 16 inches in length.

The mother and the babies are all in good health.

When Szafranski met the newborns, she had had a lot of emotions, but there was one main one.

"Shock, definitely a lot of shock," she said. "It's real now; they're here. It's real, tangible little humans."

Apparently, having twins runs in the family.

"It's something we weren't expecting and didn't feel real for quite a while," Szafranski said.

She said that coming up with the first names wasn't too hard, but the middle names were.

Szafranski said she'll have a lot of help.

"We have a very supportive family. My husband comes from a huge family, and they're all fighting about who gets to hold who and who gets to spoil who," she said.

Szafranski said she can already see personalities in the newborn. Emery is apparently stubborn and one of the boys doesn't like things on his face.
