For 730 long and heartbreaking days, Briana and Jordan Driskell, from the US state of Kentucky, tried to get pregnant.
For four consecutive months in 2016, Briana went through four failed rounds of fertility treatments. After taking five months off to cope with the heartbreak and stress, the young couple finally decided to try again.
On November 7, 2016, Briana finally saw something she never thought she would see: two pink lines on a pregnancy test, confirming that this time the treatments had worked.
But the pair were in for a huge surprise when, during their first ultrasound, the doctor began counting the number of babies Briana was carrying.
It wasn't twins. It wasn't even triplets. No, Briana and Jordan were about to become parents to quintuplets.
Despite doctors recommending the pair undergo selective reduction, to improve the chances of the babies surviving, Briana chose to keep all five babies, who were born at 28 weeks and three days on May 2.
