The amazing quints born six years apart: Couple celebrate birth of twins conceived through same IVF cycle as three other children
Becoming the parents of quintuplets takes some getting used to.

Jeanette and Arthur Fardelin have had longer than most. Their fabulous five – all conceived through IVF on the same day – were born six years apart.

The children, all sharing the same auburn hair and blue eyes, have fulfilled the couple's dream of a large happy family. And they have staggered their arrivals beautifully.

Millie was the first in 2006, while Adam, now four, came along two years later. They were followed by Matthew, now two, and last month twins Isaac and Lulu were born.

Experts say they know of no other case where five siblings have been born at different times from the same round of fertility treatment.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
