A Roebourne couple who struggled with fertility issues for years has released a new family portrait of their ‘miracle’ quadruplets.
Natalie and Kahn’s quadruplets, Maioha Kahn (2.3kg), Frankee Gene (1.92kg), Marley Rose (2.2kg) and Maddison Grace (2.1kg) were born on July 21 at 11.43am within the space of minutes.
The quadruplets join the duo’s two-year-old daughter Kiana, also known as Kiki.
In an Instagram post to their 19,000 followers yesterday, Natalie shared a photo of Kahn holding their new four additions as she smiled behind him.
“The time has come to share our new tribe members with the world. Thanks Woman’s Day for making us look like we’ve actually been sleeping,” she captioned the photo.
The couple feature in a tell-all style interview with the Australian magazine, published just a month after they welcomed the quadruplets into the world.
One of the many fans of the blogging couple to comment on their post was WA’s ‘Surprised by Five’ quintuplet mum Kim Tucci.
“I’m so thankful to be on this journey with you both. You are both such beautiful people and I can’t wait to watch you grow as a family. Watch out babies, I’m coming for cuddles,” Ms Tucci said.
Sharing an insight into her life as a mother of eight, Ms Tucci has garnered a Instagram following of 57,400 followers.
Natalie and Kahn had started trying to conceive five-years-ago but the young mother was diagnosed with “unexplained infertility” called “anovulation”.
Following ovulation induction – injecting hormones to stimulate regular ovulation – the duo finally fell pregnant with Kiki, who was born in 2018.
Wanting to give their little girl a sibling, the couple began the process again, however, got more than they bargained for when they were told four babies were on the way.
“Twins run in my family and I’d been told that there was a small chance of a multiple pregnancy with this treatment, but I could never have anticipated what would happen next,” Natlie wrote in kidspot.com in April.
“When we went for our first pregnancy scan, I saw two sacs appear on the screen and I started crying because I thought we were having twins. Kahn started crying too.”
Natalie and Kahn experienced a major hiccup during their second pregnancy, after the pair got suck in New Zealand during the start of the coronavirus border restrictions.
The couple told Kidspot.com they had travelled to Cook Islands and New Zealand while Natalie was midway through her pregnant for “one last family holiday”.
“We got stuck in New Zealand when the borders shut down. I’m trying to take everything day by day, but COVID-19 has scared me all over again,” the then 18-weeks pregnant mother said.
On return to Australia, they undertook 14 days of self-isolation in Roebourne, about 1500km north of Perth.
The couple then moved to Perth from the Pilbara in May for the last stage of her pregnancy, labelled as high risk.
