Rare Identical Quadruplets For An Expecting Couple In Alberta

First time parents Bethani and Tim Webb are pregnant with very rare identical quadruplet girls

Bethani Webb and her husband, Tim, will be welcoming four identical daughters sometime at the end of April or early May. The news came as a shock at an ultrasound appointment—even more so given that there’s no history of multiples in the family through natural conception. “Honestly, I thought the ultra sound tech was joking. I couldn’t believe it,” says Webb.

Married in June 2015, the newlyweds didn’t expect to conceive so soon, especially with four little babies instead of one. “It was a good thing my husband was sitting down because he almost fainted.”

Thankfully the community in their hometown of Hythe, Alberta has rallied around them with fundraising efforts. This has kept Webb from becoming overwhelmed at the prospect of raising quadruplets. She’s also been admitted to an Edmonton hospital for around the clock care to make sure the pregnancy goes smoothly.

Excitement for their daughters’ arrival is taking over the initial surprise and the couple has already picked out names for each of their girls: Abigail, McKayla, Grace, and Emily.

The chances of naturally conceiving quadruplets is astounding—anywhere between one in 13 million to one and 67 million. Needless to say it’s unlikely, and yet every now and then, nature finds a way.
