London, July 2 (AN): A 20-year-old woman in Britain, who was told at the age of 15 she would never have children, has beaten twenty five million-to-one odds to give birth to quadruplets.
The gorgeous girls, Evelynn, Gracie-Lou, Rosaline and Amalia-Rose Connaughton, are six months old and have been christened in a heartwarming ceremony in their hometown of Telford, Shropshire, the Daily Mail reported.
Remarkably, all four - made up of two sets of identical twins - were conceived naturally in a quadruplet pregnancy considered to be very rare and potentially very dangerous.
Their mother, Charlene Medlicott, had been diagnosed with suffering from polycystic ovaries as a teenager and been told she would never give birth.
Charlene's condition restricts ovulation and, doctors told her, dramatically lowered the odds of her becoming pregnant to almost zero.
And upon discovering she was pregnant with quadruplets, doctors advised the 20-year-old to abort two of them to give the other two a better chance of survival.
Evelynn Lillian Julie and her twin Rosaline Anita Mae were born prematurely in the same delivery as Gracie-Lou Anne and her twin Amalia-Rose Rachael last December. (ANI)
