It’s a baby boom at an Oklahoma fire department!
In under two years, the Glenpool Fire Department added seven babies to their fire family roster. This past weekend, they got together to do a photo shoot to mark the extraordinary occasion.
“The wives had a talk about it and wanted to do something once all the babies that were due were born,” Kyle McMurrian, a firefighter with the department, told InsideEdition.com. “So the last baby was born about 3 to 4 weeks ago.”
The group says the births were definitely not planned and the occurrence was just a “coincidence” the babies range in age from one month to 16 months.
They said the photo shoot, which took place Sunday, was a bit chaotic – to say the least.
“It was a nightmare,” said Kendall Dykes, another firefighter and dad. “It wasn’t easy as you can see in one of the pictures with the coats, you couldn’t get them all laying down. We just had to make do."
He added that the experience was "fun," saying, "We were all laughing the whole time."
The department said they are excited to see all of the kids grow up, and they are already like family.
"We knew it’d be fun having lots of little ones running around," McMurrian said. "We spend a third of our lives together and our families are included in that so our kids will get to grow up together and have lifelong friends."
