Here's Why You Rarely See Adam Busby's Parents On Outdaughtered

The hit TLC series "OutDaughtered" stars Adam Busby and Danielle Busby, who gave birth to the first set of all-girl quintuplets in the United States back in 2015. 

The show documents the Busby's busy lives raising the quints and their eldest, Blayke. Luckily for the couple, they don't have to take care of their six young kids all on their own. Danielle's mother Michelle Theriot — a.k.a. grandma Mimi — is often seen taking care of her grandchildren on the show.


While Danielle's mother is a fixture of the series, fans of "OutDaughtered" rarely see Adam's side of the family. Neither of Adam's two sisters gets very involved with the series. However, they can be spotted if you look very closely at the screen during family events like birthdays and other celebrations. Adam's parents Phillip and Tyrell Busby also prefer their privacy and prefer to stay in the background of the series.

Adam's parents like their privacy

The first time Adam Busby's parents made a true appearance on "OutDaughtered" was in the Season 2, Episode 10 "The Quint's Take Manhattan," (via Distractify). In the episode, the Busby's traveled to New York City to appear on "Good Morning America." When the family was invited to give an in-person update on the quintuplets, following a previous remote appearance, Adam insisted he would need to bring help.


He said during the episode, "There's no way we can travel to New York with six kids. So they said we could actually bring a few extra people to help us out." His wife Danielle Busby added, "Well, if I can bring like one adult for each kid, I mean that's doable." The Busby's decided to bring Danielle's mom Michelle Theriot and Adam's parents to help with the kids.

On a YouTube video posted to the family's channel, It's a Buzz World, Tyrell and Phillip can be seen doting after their adorable grandchildren. Though Adam's parents rarely appear on camera, it's clear from what viewers have seen that they are very supportive and loving grandparents.
