According to Jenny, the sonographer initially told them they were expecting triplets.

“My hubby Chris turned a ghostly shade of white and with a thump, he passed out on the floor," Jenny said.

They sought a specialist's opinion who informed them that they would be having quadruplets.

“Rather than faint, we both laughed this time,” she said.


Speaking to The Sun, Jenny said the arrival of the quadruplets, Harrison, Hardy, Henry and Hudson, transformed their lives.

"Life has completely changed now that we suddenly have four babies to look after," she said, adding that they go through over five litres of milk a day.

The quadruplets are rare since they are all identical, a 15 million to one chance.

Jenny admitted it was initially hard to tell them apart, but their personalities set them apart as they grew.

Over N168k on school uniforms

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Divinar Joseph, a Kenyan mother with quadruplets, spent KSh 44,550 (N168,432.40) buying school uniforms for the little girls.

For Divinar, every purchase happened in multiples as she has five daughters, four of them quadruplets.

That is one pair for each of them, which means that she will soon need to part with the exact figure if she has to give them a second pair.

Divinar disclosed that, initially, she had chosen to homeschool the children as it was cheaper.

She said:

"Homeschooling CBC is not possible due to the new government directive of every student getting NEMMIS numbers, otherwise we wouldn't be complying with the ministry of education."
