New Jersey Quintuplets: 6-Year-Old Brother Chooses Alphabetical Names For Quintuplets

A New Jersey couple welcomed quintuplets just in time for Father’s Day! According to Mail Online, Michael and Roxanna Hoffman welcomed four girls and one boy on Friday, June 13. The couple recently moved to Arizona from New Jersey due to a military transfer — Michael is a staff sergeant in the air force — so the babies were born at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix.

The precious little ones were born between 8:15 am and 8:17 am and all weighed between three and four pounds. Their names, however, are easily the best part of their life story so far. Michael and Roxanna decided to allow their 6-year-old son, Conner, to name his siblings — alphabetically — skipping the “C” for himself.

The New Jersey couple’s quintuplets were named Aurora, Brielle, Delilah, Elias, and Felicity. It’s unclear how Conner came up with the names or if any have significant meaning to him, but his parents gave him naming rights — and he did a pretty good job! Roxanna had a very hard time getting pregnant (they did fertility treatments) and it seems as though she and Michael really wanted to share their joy with their first-born in an unforgettable way.

Dad Michael says that Conner is super excited to be a big brother — and he is already planning on his four little sisters driving him nuts:

“He’s like, ‘Oh no, I’ve got four sisters now I have to watch after. They’re going to drive me crazy!’ But he’s a good little boy and if he wants to or not, he’s going to be a great help.”

Despite doctors warning the New Jersey couple about the dangers of carrying quintuplets, Roxanna and Michael decided to keep all five of their babies — all of whom were healthy but will remain in the hospital until they are bigger.

Roxanna explained:

“The fertility doctors kept apologizing to us, said they did not know how this happened. They urged us to strongly consider selective reduction with this very high-risk pregnancy.”

The Hoffmans credit Phoenix perinatologist and multiple-birth specialist, Dr. John Elliot, and his wonderful team for helping them through the process — and delivering five healthy babies. According to KPHO, Roxanna Hoffman is also doing well following the delivery.

Multiples have been in the news a lot lately. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a couple recently welcomed twins and named their sons “Ghostface” and “Raekwon” after the rappers from Wu-Tang Clan.
