Update: Here's What TLC’s 'Quints by Surprise' Family Is Doing Today!


The TLC series Quints by Surprise featured a real-life family raising six children. Ethan and his wife Casey Jones are Texas natives who met at their seventh-grade dance. After marrying, they struggled to conceive children and turned to fertility treatments, opting to use a sperm donor and undergo intrauterine insemination (IUI).

In 2004, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Eliot, and four years later Casey gave birth to quintuplets — Brooklyn, Britton, Jack, Lila, and Ryan — after undergoing IUI again.
