Going out for a couple of years was enough for Tim and Bethani Webb to realize that they want to spend the rest of their lives with each other. They weren’t actually in a hurry to start a family, but as soon as Bethani conceived, it felt like a sweet surprise for the couple. However, Tim and Bethani were left astounded after learning that they will be welcoming not one, not two, and also not three but four newborns!
“My husband definitely wanted to wait a year. I was fine with whenever it ended up happening, but then we found out we were very excited, only thinking we were having one, not four.”
Neither of them have any history of conceiving twins naturally in their bloodline, and this was the reason why Tim and Bethani were truly shocked.
“I could not believe it, I was in such shock. Honestly, I thought the ultrasound tech was joking. It was a good thing that my husband was sitting down because he almost fainted.”
Bethani also recounted that the nurse had told them that there is “one in 67 million” odds of naturally conceiving identical quadruplets. The couple also expressed that they were a little worried in terms of expenses for the babies’ needs.
Fortunately, the community fundraising campaign lessened their woes.
“It’s really amazing, because there would be no way we could do this by ourselves. Even diapers alone, they say we’re going to go through 48 diapers a day. We’re going to have a little assembly line.”
Nevertheless, they were excited to welcome Abigail, McKayla, Grace, and Emily into the world. The four adorable baby girls were born in May of 2016.
See how the netizens reacted to this rare occurrence.
Then came January 2018 and these little bundles of joy became social media sensations. This was when Bethani published a video of the quadruplets on New Year’s Eve. According to CTV News, their video clip hugging each other racked 43 million views and had been shared approximately one million times.
