LAKESIDE PARK, Ohio (WKYC) - -A little over a year ago, Kenny Carr first met Lindsay Lowrie at his brothers wedding. It wasn't long before Kenny would know Lindsay was the one for him.
The young couple was just starting their lives. He's a machinist, she was studying to become a veterinary technician.
They talked about family, Kenny's one of four boys and he often told Lindsay how he'd like four boys of his own. Neither imagined it would happen all at once.
"Immediately she broke down and started crying 'cause that's a lot to take in right off the bat. I was like, it will be OK, it will be OK, but I think I was having a little bit of a panic attack because I was in shock," Kenny remembers.
They learned they were pregnant in early November. Lindsay's mom, Carla, took her to the first appointment where an ultrasound revealed more than twins.
A day later, another ultrasound revealed quadruplets.
"I was just shocked. I had no idea how I was gonna do it if I could even carry four. I had no idea how I was gonna do it," Lindsay says.
Carla was shocked too but told the couple they would get through this as a family.
Days turned into weeks and by Christmas they had accepted the unbelievable gift they had received.
Lindsay went on strict bed rest for six weeks at Fairview Hospital where she would receive care from a team of experts including Dr. Jeff Chapa who is Cleveland Clinic's Head of the Section of Maternal-Fetal Medicine in Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
On April 18, it was time to deliver the babies via Cesarean section.
"Two minutes they were all out and delivered and it was fast but I started crying, she started crying, it was probably the most happiest moment of my life," Kenny says.
"I got to hold their hands right away and it was just amazing," Lindsay says.
But everything wasn't perfect, especially for little Bentley, the smallest of the four.
"He gave us the most trouble throughout the pregnancy but he's doing great. He's a little fighter," Lindsay says.
