People love surprises. The mere thought of having unexpected ‘good’ things is surreal. After the wedding day, the word marriage surely shares many surprises in it. But it is not a surprise that you may start a family after the wedding. But this particular story surprised the couple, their families, and surely, their neighborhood.
Bethani and Tim Webb did not expect that they will be bearing a child so soon after their wedding. But still, the two of them were so excited upon their first baby’s arrival. Apparently, they will not be welcoming their first baby, they actually welcomed their first “four” children!
Bethani explained to CBC News:
“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…”
Having quadruplets surely was not a joke. They were surprised but they were so excited. After the news of having quadruplets, the doctor cracked another announcement that left them almost fainting.
“I could not believe it, I was in such shock. Honestly, I thought the ultrasound tech was joking. I couldn’t believe it… It was a good thing that my husband was sitting down because he almost fainted.”
They were expected to be having “identical quadruplets”. Their pregnancy case was so far from the usuals. Tim and Bethani were really dumbfounded, especially not having a history of multiple births from either of their families. Identical quadruplets case actually happens one in 13-70 million cases. Thankfully, everything went well until they welcomed four adorable angels, Abigail, McKayla, Grace, and Emily.
Their story reached many people. Their neighbors even started a fundraiser just to help them with everything.
“It’s really amazing because there would be no way we could do this by ourselves.”
Bethani further talked about their adjustments, saying:
“I think my husband has gotten used to the idea that there are four babies, but I don’t think he’s gotten used to the idea that there are four identical girls.”
