Among the crowd at Floyd Casey Stadium Saturday for the Bears’ win over Iowa State were five of Baylor’s newest fans: the Jones quintuplets, Brooklyn Faith, Britton Grace, Jack William, Lila Addison and Ryan Elizabeth.
The quintet (plus oldest daughter Eliot) are the children of Ethan Jones, MBA ’11, and his wife Casey; the family is featured on the TLC reality show “Quints by Surprise.” With the family attending its first football game since the quintuplets were born, TLC cameras tagged along to document the experience for an episode later this season. The Jones family enjoyed tailgating, meeting Baylor President Ken Starr, and of course the game itself; dad Ethan even got to run the field with Judge Starr before the Baylor Line. (Ever wondered what it’s like to attend a football game with six kids? Click here for a photo gallery of their day.)
Though Ethan did his undergraduate work at Texas State, the Jones family has firmly embraced the Baylor family since Ethan earned his EMBA from BU’s Austin program last year. (A previous episode of the show documented the family’s trip to Waco for graduation.) Ethan now heads up Eliot J Construction in Austin.
Sic ’em, Jones family!
