A mom and dad have been reunited with their newborn quadruplets after being separated during the recent Texas ice storm.

Starlyn and Bill Cafferata of Austin welcomed babies Enzo, Lennon, Francesca and Stella on Jan. 18, prior to the winter storm, when dangerous weather conditions left millions without power. Some lost their lives, and the Cafferatas were trapped at home.

"I felt so helpless and guilty," Starlyn Cafferata told "Good Morning America." "But the reunion felt amazing."

Once it was safe enough to travel, the Cafferatas were reunited with their four children.
