On the heels of a new season of TLC’s OutDaughtered, series star Danielle Busby claims that it was God who put her family on the path to reality television stardom. Danielle and her husband, Adam Busby, had a lengthy period of contemplation when considering putting their six girls in front of the cameras, chronicling their daily life as a family of eight.
On her blog, Busby revealed that even after four years of having cameras follow the family’s every move, she is still not used to the way each minute of her life is documented, edited, and put out for public consumption. Surprisingly, she still has moments when she wonders if anyone will even watch — or care — about life growing up with six children under the age of 8.
She noted that she feels blessed to say she has this life, and that it was her and her husband’s faith that led them to the life they currently enjoy — as stars of their own TLC series.
Said Busby on the family’s blog, “Adam and I are Christians and we look to the Lord for guidance in our decisions. When we were faced with two big life decisions… we prayed about the direction and the Lord showed us a path so we said yes!”

Busby also remarked, “We believe this is God’s path for us. He is the creator of this extraordinary story we have and life and we are called to share our story, so this is what we will do.”

Adam and Danielle Busby were already parents to one daughter, Blayke, when they decided to expand their family. In her family blog, Danielle revealed the surprise the couple encountered when they realized that they were carrying the first set of all-girl quintuplets in the United States. Beyond that, their children would be the first set of all-girl quints born in the entire world since 1969. The couple had used intrauterine insemination and fertility drugs to conceive their daughter, and turned to these procedures again when they attempted a second pregnancy. Intrauterine insemination is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization.
Danielle Busby would eventually give birth to her children at the Women’s Hospital of Texas. It took just four minutes for Danielle to deliver Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate, and Riley Paige on April 8, 2015.
The couple was shocked when they learned of the additions to their family, and quickly realized they would be outnumbered.
