The chances of giving birth to the type of quadruplets Ashley Ness is having is roughly 1 in 70 million, according to a report.
The quadruplets are two pairs of twins, a set of boys and a set of girls.
Ness discovered she was pregnant just before Valentine’s Day, but even more surprising news came at an ultrasound two weeks later, she said.
“[The ultrasound tech] starts looking, and she says, ‘Honey, you’re having four babies.’ I said, ‘I’m sorry, what?” Ness said.
“I need to get a passenger van. I need to put an addition on the home,” she said. “Like, there is just so much that I was, like, initially, uh, I need to do a lot.”
Ness and her partner already have four children between them.
The sheer number of children might appear to be a daunting task for some, but Ness said she is lucky and “truly blessed.”
Before her first child, she said she struggled to get pregnant.
However, no fertility treatment was involved regarding her quadruplets.
The due date for the quadruplets is set for mid-October, the report noted.
“Everyone that truly knows me says that if anyone can handle it, it’s you,” Ness said.
