Texas Parents Welcome—Wait for It—Quintuplets!

Think being a parent of two under age 2 is hard? Well, get this: On March 18th, Texas couple Steven and Michelle Seals—who are already parents to a just-turned-2-years-old boy, Brady—became parents of quintuplets!

Today reports that the Maud, Texas couple welcomed four baby girls—Mia, Tessa, Gracie, and Rayleigh—and a baby boy, Brant, via C-section. The babies range in weight from 2 pounds, 8 ounces to 3 pounds, 6 ounces, and are all expected to be able to go home when they're 7 or 8 weeks old.

"We knew, like, very early on that there were multiples," Today reports that Michelle Seals said during a press conference. "I was thinking multiples was twins, but in the beginning we'd go back and see more ... we were in shock."

Um, who wouldn't be?! There's another person who's going to be in shock, too—and that's big brother Brady. Apparently, the little guy has no idea how many new siblings he has! As mom Michelle told Today, "He doesn't have a clue what is coming his way ... but I think he's going to be a great big brother."

Congrats—and best of luck—to the entire Seals family!
