hese German parents of twins were in for quite a surprise when they learned that they would be having quadruplets. Even though ultrasounds told them what was on the way, the photos show that the gravity of the situation hadn't quite hit them until the quadruplets were born.
The dad, especially, looked like this may have been the first time he thought the whole situation through.
The parents were both 28 years old when they learned that they would be having quadruplets.
They already had two girls, which were a set of four-year-old twins. The young couple had hormone treatments before both sets of kids, so the quadruplets were welcome but not planned, according to Leipziger Volkszeitung.
Both parents grew up with siblings.
The dad had four siblings and the mom had two siblings growing up. The dad said, “But if you have several children yourself, it’s something else.”
In May of 2017, Juliane Stejskal had a cesarian section during the 31st week of her pregnancy.
Juliane and all four of the newborns were healthy after the procedure. She told Leipziger Volkszeitung that she was under partial anesthesia during the procedure, but that she remembers all four babies started screaming at the same time.
This is the face of a woman who is relieved that everything went smoothly after she brought four living beings into the world on the same day.
Talk about a super mom!
Before we look at the dad's expression, the faces of the older twins are worth noting as well.

They look tentatively excited and somehow unamused at the same time. New siblings are fun if they’ll play with you, but very annoying if they take all the attention of mom and dad.
There's no going back now.
This is all of their lives now.
They’re already sharing a birthday and now they have to share a house with four squirmy little brothers and sisters. But of all the expressions, the dad’s was by far the best.
