The miracle of birth is something to celebrate every time it occurs. But on a farm in Minnesota, a true miracle happened to one regular mommy cow.
On May 24, 2018, a rare phenomenon happened for Deb and Chuck Beldo. On their farm in Sebeka, one of their cows fell pregnant for her third time. Her first two pregnancies had produced singular healthy calves, so it was expected she would deliver another baby with no problem.
As it so happened, the pregnant cow was about to have such a rare birth that it only happens in one in 11.2 million cases.
I’ve been around cows my whole life, and I’ve never seen anything like it before.
It’s not uncommon for cows to have twins so they knew there was a chance that she could have two calves. Never in their wildest dreams did Deb and Chuck expect what they would get instead.
The mama cow miraculously gave birth to quadruplets
As the cow went into labor, Deb stayed by her side, holding up fingers to Chuck for each newborn baby. As the figure kept climbing, neither of them could believe it. The new mother had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR calves! (And every single one of them is healthy and absolutely adorable.)
Congratulations to the new momma on the safe birth of her beautiful babies! Watch the video below to see the miracle quadruplets for yourself. Hopefully, they won’t let fame go to their heads now that they have gone viral.
