Manuel and Tressa Montalvo wanted to give their son a sibling, but it turns out the little boy will now have four brothers.

“We couldn’t have been more surprised when Dr. Kirshon told us we were having four babies and that they were two sets of twins,” Manuel Montalvo said in the statement.

“We were trying for one little brother or sister for our two-and-a-half year old son, Memphis.”

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.
