Say cheese! Hazel, a.k.a. “Hazel Basil,” is a daddy’s girl through and through. Whether she’s playing peek-a-boo with Adam, 37, or laying on his lap, it’s clear these two have a special bond. Unfortunately, the red-headed cutie has several health issues. Not only is she allergic to milk and soy, but she was born with an eye condition called nystagmus, a “vision condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements.” Luckily, it doesn’t seem to slow her down one bit.
The troublemaker! “RiRi” was sassy even as in infant. In a blog post posted in 2016, Danielle wrote, “It’s Riley’s world, and if you don’t think so, you better go somewhere else.” LOL! She added, “Oh! and she loves to eat … like shove however much she can in her mouth at one time.” #SpiritAnimal.
Recently, someone asked why Riley wasn’t included in the family photo shared to Adam’s Instagram account, and his response was hilarious. “Where is Riri?” one person asked, to which he replied, “Buzzing everyone in high-speed passes on her scooter. Seeing just how close she can get to her sister before getting a ride out of them. Typical Riley antics … ” We’re glad to see nothing’s changed!
This lil smartie was the first to crawl and the first to walk, despite being the youngest of the group. Er, technically. Blayke liked to call her “Baby Baby” as a result, but there’s no telling whether or not that nickname stuck. After all, she’s no longer a baby!
In a blog post titled, “Dad Fail at Telling Twins Apart,” Adam put together a video and asked the five girls, “Do you know that some people can’t tell y’all apart?” He added, “Olivia’s face is a little more narrow than Ava’s face — Ava’s the big one. I’m sorry, Ava, I don’t want to give you a complex!” He continued, “But Ava’s our big girl, and so her cheeks are a little fuller and her head’s a little rounder and she doesn’t like being talked about, huh?” The father of six laughed as she looked away from the camera before giggling herself. He also said that Olivia’s hair is curlier and she has birthmarks on her head, which is the easiest way to tell them apart.
Blayke, 9, was born almost exactly four years earlier than her sisters on April 5, 2011. In an interview with In Touch in 2017, Danielle, 35, gushed about her eldest bundle of joy.
“Blayke is something special, for sure,” she said. “She always has a heart for others, especially kids that are more in need. She just has that heart where she’s always wanting to help someone else — when it comes to seeing kids in her own classroom, to her sisters, to families in need and even doing other projects — like giving back to our community since Hurricane Harvey.” We love that she’s such a great helper!
… The quints will play! In December 2018, the couple revealed they were relocating. “It’s been a crazy, crazy, crazy couple weeks,” Danielle said at the time. Adam chimed in that they’re currently in a “temporary house” due to “issues with our old house.” He added, “We couldn’t really get around it. The only way the issues have been … could have been fixed in the house was by us not being there. So we couldn’t stay.”
