A Cumberland County woman has given birth to quadruplets, the first set of four babies to be born at Fort Bragg's Womack Army Medical Center.
WRAL-TV reported that two girls, Lilly Ann and Emma Lynn, and two boys, Ethan and Nick Jr., were born Friday to Sgt. Athena Rose and her husband, Sgt. 1st Class Nick Rose, both active duty soldiers at Fort Bragg.
Doctors say the infants -- each weighing about 3 pounds -- are healthy but won't go home until they can breathe, eat and stay warm on their own.
The parents both have served in Afghanistan and are confident they won't be deployed in the near future.
The couple had been undergoing fertility treatments.
