Everything was done the natural way — no fertility treatments or drugs were involved in this birth. The pair was shocked when the doctors first detected a third heartbeat after learning they were having more than one baby. Once they were referred to a specialist, a fourth heartbeat was detected.

The twin quadruplets were born at 31 weeks via C-section. They weighed between three pounds, 15 ounces and two pounds, 15 ounces.

The Montalvos still want one more baby. They want to try for a girl next.
