Elated dad welcomes five bundles of joy on Father's Day

Happy Father's Day: Dad Receives 5 Bundles Of Joy

Father's Day is special for any dad, but how about adding five new bundles of joy to the family to really knock the celebration out of the park? Fox News reports that, well ... that happened.

"The ultimate Father's Day gift times five. Michael and Roxanna Hoffman welcomed quintuplets. The babies are healthy and happy, but will stay in the hospital just a little while longer."

KNXV introduced the world to the four little girls and one little boy. Apparently, their older brother, Connor, got to help pick their names.

"We've got to tell you their names: Aurora Arizona. Brielle Bryleigh. Delilah Daphney. Elias Michael. And Felicity Fiona."

The Hoffmans are originally from New Jersey, but moved to Arizona during the pregnancy to receive more specialized medical care.

Michael, who is a staff sergeant at Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix, was still ecstatic about the birth of his five children when he talked with KPHO.

"Completely excited. Our biggest fear the whole time, I think, was their health. And coming here and everything going the way it did - now we're just ready to bring them home."

All five babies are healthy at 31 weeks. This is quite extraordinary, because ABC says the average gestation time for quintuplets is around "24 to 28 weeks into pregnancy, sometimes causing them to be born with underdeveloped lungs, cerebral palsy, and sight and hearing deficiencies."

All five bundles of joy were born within two minutes of each other early Friday morning.
