Fort Bragg soldier gives birth to 2 boys, 2 girls


FORT BRAGG, NC (AP) - 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.
