Danielle Busby is a popular American reality TV star who shot into the spotlight for two reasons; first for delivering a set of quintuplets and secondly for starring in the reality TV show called OutDaughtered. The TV show was created to feature her large family including the quintuplets as they move about living their daily lives. The show has won several devoted fans who have variously expressed their admiration for the kids as they grow in front of the camera.
Danielle’s story is quite a phenomenal one considering the fact that she was initially unable to conceive and deliver babies. However, things cleared up for her and her husband as they soon welcomed new members into their family, a development which kick-started their reality TV career.

1. How She Met and Married Her Husband Adam Busby
Danielle Busby and her husband, Adam Busby, met in an interesting manner. The pair met themselves while they were both working at a Target Store in Lake Charles.

When Adam eventually spoke to Danielle, the very first words he said to her were “hey beautiful” and then struck up a conversation. The man eventually asked her out on a date and she accepted. The date turned out to be the birthday dinner for Adam’s sister where Danielle met Adam’s family members. That night, Adam asked her to be his girlfriend and she accepted.
After dating for nearly 3 years, Adam proposed to Danielle on Christmas Eve. They finally tied the knot as husband and wife on 22nd July 2006 in front of close friends and family members. Following their wedding, the couple moved from Lake Charles to Houston, Texas in order to start their family there.
2. She and Her Husband Struggled with Infertility
Danielle and Adam Busby are both lovers of children and they were looking forward to having great kids together. However, after their marriage, they found out they had fertility issues. They tried for one whole year to have a baby without success. This was because Adam had a low sperm count, and suffered the problem of low testosterone levels, and sperm motility. On the other hand, Danielle suffered from irregular ovulation.
Seeing that they had issues giving birth, the couple turned to doctors for a way out. The doctor advised them to try and conceive by using a procedure called intrauterine insemination (IUI). They tried this procedure for some months without success, however, Danielle later got pregnant. They eventually welcomed their first baby; a girl whom they called Blayke Louise Busby in April 2011.

The treatment worked after some months and Danielle got pregnant, however, when they went for an ultrasound, they realized that Danielle was actually pregnant with not one but five babies. This realization both surprised and elated the couple so much that Adam almost passed out.
Danielle finally gave birth to their quintuplets on the 8th of April, 2015 at 28 weeks through a C-Section. The quintuplets were named Ava Lane Busby, Olivia Marie Busby, Hazel Grace Busby, Riley Paige Busby, and Parker Kate Busby.
