After welcoming quadruplets this summer, a family in Texas saw its size nearly double. At their 12-week ultrasound, Gaby Hagler, 39, and Patrick Hagler, 50, discovered they were expecting not one, but four babies. “We thought we were looking at two views of the same baby and then possibly four, but the ultrasound tech was all excited and she’s counting ‘one, two, three, oh wait, no, no, wait, there’s four,'” gaby Hagler, a real estate broker, recalled to “Good Morning America.”
We’re thinking, “Four? Whoa, four? Four legs? Why are we counting, for example? “Well, look, look up there,” she says. How do you see that? And there were four distinct babies acting in four distinct ways. At that time, it was quite evident that there were not numerous views of the same child.
On June 22, quadruplets Bennett, Coby, Dane, and Adam Hagler were born. After having previously experienced a miscarriage, the couple admitted that they were in “complete ock” at the news, but they were eager to meet their rainbow children.
At 34 weeks pregnant, Adam, Bennett, Coby, and Dane were born on June 22. The older siblings of the infant boys, stepbrother Paxton, 12, stepsister Kalleigh, 13, and brother Sammy, 2, assisted with the care of the fraternal quadruplets.
The Hagler quadruplets, who were born in June, have been alive for about two months.
“The quadruplets] were in two different NICUs for a few days before the boys all combined in the intermediate-level NICU and began to be discharged to go home rather fast. Fortunately, there were no problems with the babies, according to Gaby Hagler. The Haglers believe that the quadruplets have improved their life even though they only intended to have one more child.
Marriage and family therapist Patrick Hagler said, “I just turned 50 so turning 50 with four little babies most people are becoming grandparents at 50 and so I don’t know, I think it’s energized me.”
He said that they were lucky to be able to draw from their retirement savings, saying, “It’s been definitely life-changing and a little bit difficult because we had financially planned for one more and that even took some planning and thinking about how we were going to do things.” “The entire financial strategy was utterly destroyed, but it is still manageable. At first, it’s just a little intimidating. On June 22, quadruplets Bennett, Coby, Dane, and Adam Hagler were born.
The Haglers have been working out their routine with the quadruplets as they continue to develop, in addition to the financial changes. According to Gaby Hagler, they go through an average of 45 diapers, 95 wipes, 12 to 24 bottles, and about nine hours each day is spent feeding, burping, changing, and attending to the needs of the quadruplets.
The Hagler family includes Adam, Bennett, Coby, and Dane as well as Kalleigh, Gaby, Sammy, Patrick, and Paxton, who are the quadruplets. The Hagler family has designated a “nqe” color and animal to each newborn in order to make it simpler for family members to recognize them. Coby frequently wears white and pandas, Bennett’s theme is green and sloths, and Adam’s theme relies on blue and giraffes, while Dane’s motif is green and sloths.
“We realized that with the naming of the cribs and the way we have the cribs set up that that works for us pretty well. But the idea was to color code them and everyone gets their own color,” Patrick Hagler said.
Gaby Hagler said the babies’ personalities have started to emerge too, noting that Adam appears to be “the most mature,” Bennett is now “the star of the show” and Coby is “the professional baby,” who is always “on schedule.”
Gaby and Patrick Hagler have tried several methods to ensure their quadruplets don’t get mixed up, including painting each baby’s toenail a different color.
The parents express their gratitude for the love and support they have received from their near and far family members and friends who have come together to support them. They also claimed that the older siblings of the quadruplets had stepped up to lend them a helping hand as they have all settled in at their Katy, Texas home. The Hagler siblings include quadruplets Adam, Bennett, Coby, and Dane, who will turn 2 months soon, as well as Kalleigh, 12, Paxton, 12, Sammy, 2, and Paxton, 13.
