A 29-year-old man from Phoenix, Arizona is raising quadruplets after his wife tragically passed away while giving birth to three girls and one boy.

The Root reports:

Carlos Morales told his wife Erica, 36, that he loved her just minutes before she gave birth to quadruplets who were conceived through IVF.  She went into labor at seven months, and doctors delivered the babies by cesarean section, the report says.

Erica Morales went into hypovolemic shock, a condition in which patients experience severe blood loss, the report says. She died at 1:50 a.m. on Jan. 16, before she even had a chance to hold her babies, who were safely delivered, writes People.

Carlos recalls the excitement they both had when they first learned they’d be have a family of their own. With the help of friends and family, he has managed to care of the babies. A good friend of Carlos’ started a GoFundMe page where people can make donations to help him.
