A California couple have welcomed home the healthiest set of quintuplets ever born according to doctors, in addition to their big sister Gianna.
Returning to their Fullerton home on Wednesday Meryl and John Ferraro were greeted by a banner reading 'Welcome home GRACE + 1.'
With so many children, three girls and two boys in addition to their two-year-old big sister Gianna, the parents say it may be easier to refer to them all using a simple acronym for: Gabrielle, Riley, Addison, Cooper and Emerson.
'We figured we would eventually forget their names, so if we yell "GRACE" they'd all come running,' Mrs Ferraro playfully told CBS Los Angeles.
Today appearing in good spirits with the added assistance of community members donating time, money and household baby items, it was just one month ago she gave birth via C-section to the healthy brood at an Arizona hospital.

What a sweet story. Love the GRACE. It will definitely come in handy sooner than later once they get mobile.
At bedtime they can say, “Goodnight, GRACIE!”............
Aw, the little darlings! I had a coworker who had triplets - Amanda, Brooke, and Cassandra - and she would call, “A-B-C, come here!” She said it wasn’t too bad until they could run in three different directions!
Fortunately, both parents were from old Texas Polish families, and they had two sets of grandparents right there, plus aunts and uncles and whatall.
Wow, those weights are pretty substantial. Must have been one uncomfortable pregnancy.
I’m guessing Riley and Addison are girls, Cooper and Emerson are boys.
Three girls 2 boys. Read the story. They are adorable. Miracle children.
Riley, Addison and Emerson could be either boy or girl names. I think that was what the poster was asking... which name goes to which gender.
G-R-A-C-E should be HONORARY FREEPERS!! If the parents aren’t Freepers, they should be, since they REFUSED to ABORT any of them!!!
All I can say is God bless and be with them.
Maybe their name for their older child is a giveaway—Gianna. Could be named for St. Gianna Beretta Molla (1922-1962) who refused to have an abortion knowing that her refusal would result in her own death.
They should get prayers from us FReepers!!!
