RICHMOND, Va. — A Goochland County couple with quintuplets said they’re finding joy in the little things.

Media outlets report the Baudinet quintuplets made their public debut Tuesday in Richmond. Ava Louise, Clara Catherine, Camille “Millie” Whitney, Luke Thomas, and Isabelle Frances were born Dec. 4 in Arizona. The couple temporarily moved to Phoenix after finding a doctor with a high success rate in delivering multiples.

When they first found out they were having quintuplets, Michael Baudinet said he was in shock and couldn’t speak for a month.

After several miscarriages and fertility treatment, Margaret Baudinet says she was excited and terrified.

Both have full-time jobs as well as live-in nannies and volunteers.

Margaret Baudinet says they’re finding joy in the small things from being vomited on to looking at a first smile.
