Healthy quints born at Cardon Children's Medical Center

Posted: Updated:
MESA, Ariz. -

Would you follow a doctor across the country?  One North Carolina couple did, but they had five very special reasons to.

Meet Carmen Matthews and her husband Mike, the proud parents of quintuplets.

"..Sunday we got a positive pregnancy test..went to the doctor on Monday...saw five heartbeats and I told him we would no longer be coming back to see him," said Mike.

But going back to see the doctor is exactly what the proud parents-to-be-did.  In fact, they followed Dr. John Elliot to California first, then to Arizona where the five healthy babies, two girls and three boys -- made their debut early Thursday morning at ardon Children's Medical Center in Mesa.

The quints were born at 34 weeks and the smallest boy weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces.
