The quadruplets are actually two sets of identical twins, which is so rare that its odds are 1 in 70 million.

The smallest baby was just less than two pounds, and the rest were more than two pounds, according to the Facebook page. All four newborn girls have dark hair, it said.

"Mama is doing great and Dad is over joyed!" the Facebook page read.

The Pleasant Grove, Utah, couple had tried to have children for years but Ashley Gardner, 27, had endometriosis, making conception difficult. So they underwent in-vitro fertilization and had two embryos implanted. But the embryos split, creating two sets of identical twins. In a natural birth, the chances of this happening is one in 70 million.
