UTAH (WITI) -- A Utah mom-to-be's reaction when she sees her ultrasound for the very first time has gone viral -- and now, the Utah couple is celebrating, after learning they're pregnant with quadruplets!
On Friday, October 3rd, Ashley Gardner walked into her baby shower wearing a huge smile.
After struggling to get pregnant for eight years, Ashley Gardner is now pregnant with quadruplets.
"It's heartbreaking when you can't get there. I've always wanted to just be a mom," Ashley Gardner told FOX6's sister station FOX13 in Salt Lake City.
In July, Ashley Gardner and her husband Tyson learned their first attempt at in-vitro fertilization had worked, but the real surprise came at their next appointment. As the doctor performed an ultrasound, they realized there wasn’t just one baby -- but four!

“That was the happiest day. It was a different kind of happy. I was shocked!" Tyson Gardner told FOX13.
The couple’s difficult journey through the in-vitro process was all documented on camera. Whether the results were good or bad, the Gardners wanted a way to remember it all.
“This is my story. When I decided to publicly share my story of infertility, I realized it was nothing to be ashamed about," Ashley Gardner said.
The pictures captured their clinic visits, the painful treatments and the exhaustion they felt.
“I have been through eight years and IVF was my last chance. It was my last step, and I wanted it documented, no matter what the outcome was," Ashley Gardner said.
Finally, when news of the quadruplets came, the couple captured a series of photos they consider to be priceless. Those photos went viral online.
The Gardners are expecting four girls this December.
"My life has been colored pink!" Tyson Gardner told FOX13.
