Three months after their wedding, Bethani and Tim Webb of Hythe, a town in Canada, got lucky. The newlyweds, anxious to start a family, had lost no time in trying to conceive, and were pleasantly surprised at how well everything was working out. But when they went in for a routine ultrasound in December, the couple got an even BIGGER surprise--one that made Tim almost faint.
The technician counted not one baby, not two, not even three. There were four babies in there! Neither Bethani nor Tim had a history of multiples in their families. The couple weren't on fertility drugs, either; and they'd gotten pregnant the old-fashioned way, not via IVF. Their chances of having quadruplets without fertility drugs was 1 in 729,000, according to Today.com.
The babies were born on May 6, and the couple got yet another surprise!
All four newborn girls were identical to one another. So the Webbs beat the odds again, because the chances of having identical quadruplets is 1 in 15 million!
Here is a photo of these cuties, who will be going home from the NICU later this week.
