The quadruplets were born via C-section on January 16.
"It was the best day of my life," Morales told People.

"Nothing in my life had ever made me this happy."

But then Erica, still under anesthesia, soon went into a hypovolemic shock, an emergency condition involving massive blood loss. She died within hours.

Despite his grief, Morales told the magazine he remains steadfast for his children.

"These babies don't know yet what blessings they have given me. They have given me four reasons to live," he said.

"It's funny how things turn out. Bittersweet, but at the same time, thanks to God, and the outpouring support of the public, it's been phenomenal," she said. "And I'd like to say thank you to each and every one of you. All the support we've gotten from you, we appreciate it."
