Meet UK’s Only Identical Quadruplets, You Can’t tell them Apart! (VIDEO)
Have you ever had to write your child’s initials on them to remember which one was which?
The Carles’ household is home to four girls who are 4 of a kind but who also beat the odds of 64 million to one to survive. Ellie, Georgina, Jessica and Holly are Britain’s only identical quadruplets and their mum Julie was only the 27th woman in the world to conceive monochorionic quads naturally. The girls are so alike that for the first year Julie and her husband Jose had to write the babies’ initials on their feet in permanent marker to tell them apart, and Jose sometimes still struggles to know who is who… it probably doesn’t help that Mum dresses them all the same.
Until now, the girls didn’t have much contact with life outside of their family. They are all each other’s best friends and work like a little mischief making machine, an inseparable unit working as one. But that’s all about to change as the girls start their first year of primary school.
The documentary video below follows their journey during their first year at school as they cause a lot of confusion and sometimes hostility wherever they go. With identical strawberry blonde corkscrew curls, the same faces and heights – they are impossible to tell apart and people often stare and ask some quite blunt questions about what it’s like to bring up four of a kind.
This documentary aims to answer these questions and also give insight into the uniqueness of identical quadruples. How identical are they really?
They’ve shared everything from birthdays to their first day of school. Now Britain’s only identical quadruplets are fully fledged models.
Ellie, Georgie, Holly and Jessica Carles were recruited by Sainsbury’s to show-off their school uniform range in a series of adverts.
Their mother, Mrs., Carles said: ‘Last year I had to mark initials on their collars to help teachers, this year they’ve developed their own style and have selected different products to test, which should give their teachers a head start.’
