Having quadruplets is very rare. Chances of having quadruplets in US with a population of 4 million is 1 out of 729,000 or about 6% of the population. It is a very risky birth because the mortality rate is high and that not all of the quads may survive.
To bear four identical quads is the rarest of them all. The probability is 1 out of 11,000,000. So when I learned about the identical mathias girls, I was really amazed. Take a look at them.
Emily, Grace, Anna and Mary Claire
The Mathias girls are born on February 16, 2000 and their parents are Allison and Steve Mathias from Lexington, South Carolina.
The quads became popular when they won $250,000.00 on America’s Funniest Home Videos. They already have guessed at Oprah and Jay Leno show. They were also featured in 3 episodes of a documentary show called “Super Quads” aired at Discovery Health Channel.
They are so cute and adorable. The girls will now turn 8 on February.
