On October 3, 2013, Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital joyfully celebrated the births of four healthy brothers to Sugar Land’s Aggour Family. According to the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Club (NOMOTC), in 2011 there were a total of 3,953,590 births, 239 of which were quadruplet births. With so few quadruplet births, the Aggour identical triplets Deen, Kareem and Omar along with singleton Saif definitely beat the odds.
