Danielle Busby is a reality television star who rose to fame after giving birth to the only American all-girl quintuplets on April 8, 2015.

The popularity subsequently led her to star in TLC's reality series OutDaughtered, first premiered on May 10, 2016, along with her husband Adam Busby and their children.

Her Mother Was Affected by Hurricane

The mother of the quintuplets was born on December 23, 1983, in Lake Charles, Louisiana, United States. 

Danielle was raised by her parents along with her twin sisters Ashley and Crystal. Both of her sisters are married and have two children each.

The OutDaughtered star's mother is Michelle Theriot, aka Mimi, who was affected by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Michelle lost everything after the storm completely destroyed her house.

Writing the situation on the family blog, Danielle stated that her mother and other close friends lost everything.

"We had to throw away pretty much EVERYTHING. It has been very emotional...having to throw away family heirlooms, photos from when we were all kids...just...all around our memories," she added.

After the incident, Danielle's mother moved to her daughter's house in Texas and started working as a real estate agent.

Danielle's Father Remains off the Radar

Over the years, Danielle starrer reality show OutDaughtered has featured the lives of every person related to Danielle, including her husband, kids, mother, sisters, and in-laws.

The only person who hasn't been seen so far is her father, who just not only has missed out on the show but has never been a topic of discussion as well.

Because of that, fans have been curious to know the reality behind her father's absence.

Well, Distractify reported in February 2021 that her father has reportedly passed away based on Michelle's Veterans' Day post in 2018. The outlet stated that Danielle's mother had posted a photo of two young army men on November 12, 2018, writing:

Celebrating Veterans Day in heaven! Great friends! Love Johnny Forsyth and Fred Theriot!! We were blessed beyond words.

Going by those details, Danielle's father was Fred Theriot, an army man, who passed away years ago.

Danielle's Married Life and Birth of Quintuplets

Danielle and her husband Adam tied the knot on July 22, 2006, after dating for three years.

Presently, the couple is blessed with six daughters: eldest daughter, Blayke Louise, born on April 5, 2011, and quintuplets Ava Lane, Olivia Marie, Hazel Grace, Riley Paige, and Parker Kate, who were all born on April 8, 2015.

But the TV star initially struggled with infertility which delayed her pregnancy. After almost an unsuccessful year, Danielle, who was on her sixth cycle of intrauterine insemination (IUI), finally became pregnant, giving birth to their first daughter, Blayke.

After the birth of the first child, the couple wanted to welcome another child into the family. However, they were aware of Danielle's fertility issues, because of which she started taking a medicine called Femara, which is used to treat infertility in females.

To their surprise, it worked and how. After a month of trial and four ultrasounds, the pair got extremely surprised with the news that Danielle was pregnant with quintuplets. 

Such cases were unnatural — therefore, the new babies had to be born via C-section.

With that, Danielle and Adam became the first American couple to be the parents of quintuplets daughters. Being the first American couple to do so, their fates changed.
