This super sweet photo made the rounds in August, when the Gardners, from Utah, found out they were having four babies.

After struggling with infertility for many long years, they underwent in vitro fertilization (IVF). An early sonogram revealed that Ashley had four babies on board. A friend was there to catch the moment on camera.

Much of Ashley's pregnancy took place on bedrest, and she underwent surgery in October when it was discovered that two of the babies were experiencing twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. The surgery was successful, but the last couple of months were painful and uncomfortable.

When she was 29 weeks, she started to have contractions, and Sunday her doctors decided she and the babies could wait no more. The four girls — Indie, Esme, Scarlett and Evangeline — were successfully delivered via C section.

The family reports that Mom and the babies are doing well.
