Briefly.co.za learned Morales could only take his quads home after two months in the hospital and he had to raise them by himself. Luckily, his story touched the hearts of many, even celebs such as Steve Harvey, and he has thus far done a great job raising his four kids.

His story resurfaced on Twitter earlier this month and it gave social media users the feels.

South Africans applauded the father for having the courage to raise his four kids without the help of their mother.

There were social media users who asked, "Who else would raise his kids?", but others pointed out it's not easy raising even one child when both parents are present. Morales is alone and four kids are much more work and money.
