This couple were ecstatic to learn that they were expecting a baby, but were shocked when they learnt the truth. 


Bethani and Tim Webb of Hythe, Canada, had just been married a few months when they found out that Bethani was pregnant. 

When they went for the first ultrasound, they received some shocking news: Bethani was, in fact, carrying identical quadruplets! 

In March 2016, the couple welcomed their four little girls, Emily, Grace, McKayla, and Abigail


The girls were conceived naturally, which Bethani's nurse told her was a 1 in 67 million chance. They were delivered by Caeserean. 

“Of course, I’m worried about her,” Tim said to Global News. “The day of, everything went fine. It was kind of like a magic show, because they’re pulling out one, two, three, four… It was kind of surreal.” 


Following the births, Bethani recovered well from the surgery, while her precious baby girls were all kept in incubators in the NICU for a few days. 

As for their names, the couple shared that having four girls meant they were lucky in that they didn't have to pick just one name they liked. 

“We just decided,” Bethani said. “Found some we liked and picked them out. It was nice that we didn’t have to pick our favourites. We could just pick four we liked.”

Tim was just excited to make memories with his lovely little girls, while Bethani was looking forward to the crazy first few years looking after four little ones.
