Kimberly Fugate gave birth at 28 weeks pregnant, a few days before her 42nd birthday. Not only that, but Kimberly didn’t even know she was expecting until she was 13 weeks along. The icing on the cake was learning that she was expecting triplets.
Kimberly and her husband Craig had little time to prepare for her three pregnancies, so they were ill-prepared for what transpired in the delivery room.
“It’s all been rather overwhelming when you think about how many changes will have to be made, But I am just trying to take everything one day at a time. I know it will all work out.” Kimberly said
In 2013, Kimberly Fugate became pregnant in her early 40s. The mom, who was already a mother to a 10-year-old, Katelyn, was suddenly expecting triplets — rare triplets at that.
She and her husband, Craig, conceived the babies without IVF. That’s almost unheard of!
Just before her 42nd birthday, after delivering three identical girls, doctors told her there was a little more in store.
“They had gotten the three out, and they said, ‘More feet,’” Kimberly told CNN. “I said, ‘No!’ It was an instant sʜᴏᴄᴋ.”
Kimberly and Craig had produced four identical quadruplet girls. Their names and birth order: Kenleigh Rosa, Kristen Sue, Kayleigh Pearl, and Kelsey Roxanne. The odds of conceiving spontaneous quadruplets are 1 to 729,000. However, the odds that they would be identical are almost incalculable at about 13 million to one. Their doctor, James Bofill, was baffled! “I was very ᴇᴍʙᴀʀʀᴀssᴇᴅ, ᴏʙᴠɪᴏᴜsʟʏ, The news was sent to me by one of my Fᴇʟʟᴏᴡs. I thought she ᴡᴀs ᴋɪᴅᴅɪɴɢ.” James said
“The babies were the biggest surprise of my life, and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. I believed that God picked me to have these quadruplets, and I felt that He would take care of them and allow them to sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ. To see how far they’ve come makes me feel very blessed. I feel very lucky, like the luckiest mom in the whole world. I wasn’t planning on starting over with more children, and many things have changed since I had my quadruplets, Kenleigh, Kristen, Kayleigh and Kelsey.” she said
