Both of them planned on having at least three to four children.
They conceived their first daughter through IVF.
So when Miranda wished to have another child, they leaned towards IVF again.
Doctor injected two embryos into her uterus. Six weeks later, the couple was given the good news that they are having twins.
Four weeks later they were told that they were actually having quadruplets.
