Texas mother gives birth to quadruplets

BRYAN, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas woman has given birth to quadruplets.

St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan on Tuesday announced the two boys, the two girls and their mother are all doing well.

Hospital spokeswoman Heather Bush says the premature quads were born Saturday night to Nyosha Boone of Bryan. The woman and her husband, Brian Boone Jr., also have a 5-year-old son.

A hospital statement says Austin was born at 3 pounds 2 ounces, Ashton was delivered at 3 pounds 6 ounces, Addison weighed in at 2 pounds 10 ounces and Arianna arrived at 3 pounds 9 ounces.

Bush says they were born a few weeks early, at 32 weeks.

The statement says the four are in neonatal intensive care and are expected to go home in 6-8 weeks.
