Fifth 'quadruplet' a surprise for Columbus couple

The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — A couple who had been expecting quadruplets ended up with a fifth baby.

        Kristen Watson gave birth by Caesarean section to three girls and two boys within five minutes Monday night at Riverside Methodist Hospital.

        “I feel like the more the merrier,” she said Tuesday.

        One of the boys, Kyle, was last to be born and weighed the most at 3 pounds, 5 1/2 ounces.

        The first baby, Kaitlyn, was the smallest, at 2 pounds, 9 ounces. The other children are named Caroline, Connor and Corinne.

        Mrs. Watson and her husband, Craig, both 30, also have a nearly 2-year-old daughter, Cassady. The family lives in Plain City, about 20 miles northwest of Columbus.

        Mrs. Watson is an elementary school teacher in the Worthington school district in suburban Columbus. Her husband works for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

        Quintuplets also were born this year to couples in the suburb of Reynoldsburg and in the Sidney area.
