Danielle and Adam Busby, the stars of TLC's docuseries OutDaughtered, are potentially the busiest parents we know. The couple share six daughters, six-year-old Blayke and the only set of all-female quintuplets in America. Think on that for a moment. Six children, five of whom are going through the infamous terrible twos. Chaos, right? I mean, what sort of home must they have to manage that many little feet and little fingers? Fans of the show often wonder where Danielle and Adam Busby live, and how their home holds up under the strain of so many little girls. Not to mention running their own business, working, and starring in a reality tv show (it kind of makes a girl feel bad about struggling to make her own coffee this morning).
The Busbys live in Houston, Texas.. They moved to the Houston area from Lake Charles, Lousiana about a decade ago, pre-kids and pre-reality series and not long after they were married, as Danielle explained in a 2014 blog post. She noted it had always been "a dream" of theirs to raise a family in Houston:
Shortly after we were married we moved off to the big city of Houston, Texas. We have always loved children and feel like we have had a gift of being great with kids. It was only natural for us to have a deep desire to be parents.
Since moving to the Houston area, their lives have changed drastically. Adam works as an account manager, while Danielle is a beauty consultant. Oh... and they're definitely parents now. The couple went through IVF treatments to conceive six-year-old Blayke, and then again for the quintuplets. Ava Lane, Olivia Marie, Hazel Grace, Riley Paige and Parker Kate were born in April 2015 in Houston.
In 2016, when the quints were still babies, Adam and Danielle moved into a bigger home for some much-needed space. Danielle wrote of the experience in a blog post for the family's website, It's A Buzz World, documenting the challenges of moving with five babies while also filming the first season of OutDaughtered. Because honestly, it seems sort of impossible to imagine.
Packing up all of your possessions while caring for a four year old and 5 babies at home is no easy task …AND with Buzz working……there was literally no time to pack up anything. Also, We are still trying to wrap up filming Season 1 of our TV Show, so there are certain things around the house that literally could not be moved until the very last possible minute. During naps and after bed was the only time I had to pack but even that was not enough time to pack up everything.
Thankfully, the couple had plenty of extra pairs of hands from friends and family, and were able to get the job done. Now they are happily living in a home in League City, Texas, a place finally big enough for the whole family, according to their website:
Though it was sad to leave our first home, it feels so amazing to not be stepping over babies, literally. We are in awe over our new home and excited to start our new memories here.
Although the Busbys live in the Houston area, their home was not affected by the recent devastation left by Hurricane Harvey. Together with their church members and friends, the couple have been pitching in to help those affected by the storm. Danielle wrote on It's A Buzz World:
Those who were fortunate not to flood have not just sat around and done nothing. Hundreds of members of our Church have walked into many homes who have lost everything; pulled up floors, sheet rock, cabinets; washed over 1400 loads of laundry; stepped in to do some of the hard stuff… like throw away so many cherish-able memories and items….things we may call ‘stuff’ but to those families it’s their home.
The Busbys have clearly created a community for themselves ever since their move to Houston. Which is helpful... because man, do they have their hands full.
