She is the fourth Busby quintuple
Riley is the fourth quintuplet. She has five sisters in total — Ava Lane, Olivia Marie, Hazel Grace and Parker Kate and Blayke, who is the quint's older sister.
She's a smart little cookie
In Season 5, we saw the quints all ready to start pre-kindergarten, except for Riley, who was going to jump ahead and go directly to kindergarten. It was quite a big storyline for the season, to see one of the five girls skip a grade. Seeing that this was an option brought forth after careful consideration, Adam and Danielle figured that this was for the best and that Riley's intelligence should be encouraged and she should be given room to grow.
Danielle believes she resembles her the most
While the girls are a mix of Adam and Danielle, mom Danielle believes that as a baby, Riley resembled her the most, in terms of features. Danielle pointed it out in one of her blog posts too.
"Riley reminds me of me the most. She has fair skin like I did as a baby and she is the only one who has skin like this…. maybe she will have dark hair like me too… I just want atleast one dark hair girly like their Mommy" — is what she had to say. While Riley did look like her, it's incidentally Ava who takes up after her.
She's a total daddy's girl
Right from the age of one, Danielle knew that Riley was a complete daddy's girl. She even mentioned it in a blog post, saying that out of the five, Riley definitely vied for her dad's attention. "She is probably the Daddy’s girl out of the bunch. She will pitch a F.I.T if Adam comes home and doesn’t tell Riley hi before the other babies," she wrote.
Looks like that is still pretty true even now, seeing that Adam shared this adorable photo of them, captioned "Don’t mind the two photo bombing in the back... Riley wanted a picture with her best friend on the train. #itsabuzzworld"
She loves animals, especially Beaux
In Danielle's Q&A with Riley, she mentioned that she loves Beaux, the family adorable French bull dog. She even enjoys playing with his toys. The two make an absolutely adorable duo, as you can tell. Seeing that her favorite movie also happens to be 'Secret Life of Pets', she definitely has a soft spot for animals.
