The happiest day in a man’s life quickly became the most tragic.

Carlos Morales (29), of Phoenix in the US, was shattered when his wife, Erica, died on 16 January of loss of blood after giving birth to their quadruplets two months prematurely.

"The doctor said she was having too many contractions so it was time to deliver the babies," Carlos told PEOPLE. "We took pictures before she went into the delivery room, made some videos, and she was surrounded by family and friends. I said to her, 'Let's get these babies out.' "

Erica gave birth to three girls and a boy but suddenly suffered from hypovolemic shock due to severe blood loss. She died in the early hours of the morning.

"I went from having the best day of my life to the next morning experiencing the worst day of my life," he said. "My four babies came into the world and then my wife died."

Although the babies weigh between 900 g and 1,3 kg they’re in good health.

Since his wife’s death Carlos has been taking baby-care lessons at a local hospital.

Two of the babies, Carlos jr and Tracey, are already at home. Paisley and Erica are still being cared for in hospital.
