U.S. & World

GLENPOOL, OK (WCMH) — Seven Oklahoma firefighters at the same station welcomed seven new babies within a few months of each other. 

A viral post on the Glenpool Fire Department’s Facebook page shows the seven proud daddies showing off their babies. 

According the post, the firefighters welcomed five girls and two boys within the last year. 

Firefighter Kendall Dykes with the Glenpool Fire Department, whose wife Avery took the photo, told the USA Today that it didn’t take too much convincing to get the dads to take the picture.

“We know first-hand and how fragile life is and we never want to take new life for granted,” Kendall said. 

The now viral photo has been shared thousands of times and has hundreds of comments.
