Mathias Girls: The Identical Quadruplets

Posted on Updated on


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.

Mathias Girls
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.

    Wow, how amazing.
    That is so freaky. I don’t think I could handle three other people looking exactly like me.

    So cute!Looking at recent pictures I am amazed. My best friend had 6 girls within 8 years and my mother always teased her that she should buy stock in the Kotex company. I can for see that will be a big need for these girls as well as orthodontic bills for braces, and if they are like the average girl – the bills for clothing will be phenomenal. Just think of the cost for 4 prom dress! Then there will be the cost of weddings! Hope they invested their winnings well!

    They are precious. Allison does a great job being a mom of four that were born the same day. The only bad part would be clothes. There are none to hand down when they all wear the same size.

    I have 1 other person who looks like me lol. and that’s enough. if there were 2 or 3 that were identical that would be weird. we both had braces, have glasses, are going to college, and doing everything. i can’t imagine how much they have doubling what my parents have and they’re halfway to my age.
