Two of them, Lara and Lyanna were born weighing 1.6kgs and had holes in their hearts which forced them to stay in neonatal care for a month before discharge.

At the end of it all, a total bill of R820 000 had been accrued but both mom and her babies were in good health.

A Five-Year Rollercoaster

Divinar revealed that it has been a rollercoaster ride bringing up the bundles of joy.

To begin with, the private school teacher has had to always employ two house helps because the burden can be overwhelming for one.

"The biggest challenge is sickness. Sometimes they all fall sick at the same time," she said.

The Nun Dream

Perhaps, the one unknown fact in the story of Divinar and her quadruplets is that she was meant to be a nun from a very young age.

This is due to the fact that she was largely raised by her aunt (dad's sister) who is a nun.

"I have lived in the convent almost all my life and even enrolled to be a nun, but then I joined campus and, somehow, got a boyfriend," revealed Divinar.

With her plans of being a forever nun nipped in the bud, her story changed and her mind started embracing a new idea; marriage.

No regrets

Divinar is quick to add that she does not regret the turnaround as she's been blessed to bring forth such beautiful girls, and four at the same time.

She currently runs a parenting group on Facebook where fellow parents share different experiences with raising their children.

As the little ones celebrate their fifth birthday today, Divinar looks back with nostalgia and gives thanks to God for the gains, lessons, and milestones.
