“Mississippi Couple Celebrates Rare Quintuplet Arrival”: One Boy and Four Identical Girls

The parents of five special babies born in Mississippi recently shared their first photo as they celebrated Easter together. Haylee and Shawn Ladner were overjoyed to hold all their quintuplets at once, something they hadn’t been able to do until now.

“It was a bit scary holding all five babies at once,” Shawn said, “but it was really special. Seeing them all together for the first time since they were in the womb was amazing.”

The couple was relieved that all their babies were healthy, which isn’t always the case with quintuplets. “It’s been amazing to see all five babies grow and thrive without any problems,” Haylee said.

Getting pregnant wasn’t easy for Haylee and Shawn. After two miscarriages, they turned to a special treatment to help them conceive.

“We were shocked when we found out we were having quintuplets,” Haylee shared. “We only expected twins, so it was a big surprise.”

Haylee and Shawn consider their babies miracles and want to share their story to give hope to other couples struggling with infertility.

Their quintuplets – four identical girls and one boy – were born prematurely at Wiser Hospital for Women at UMCC. The babies had to stay in the hospital’s intensive care unit for some time.

“The babies are still learning to feed from bottles,” Haylee explained. “Once they get better at it, they’ll be able to come home.”

Despite the challenges, Shawn, who works as a mechanic, and Haylee are grateful for their babies. Shawn travels back and forth to work while Haylee stays at the hospital with the babies.

“It’s the best thing I’ve ever done,” Haylee said. “I’m so happy to see them grow every day.”

The Ladners plan to document their babies’ milestones on their new YouTube channel, “5 Little Ladders.”

To help with the unexpected expenses, Shawn has set up a GoFundMe page. They appreciate any support they receive as they care for their miracle babies.
