One of Dionne Quintuplets Gives Birth to Twins

July 20, 1961 - Cecile Dionne, one of the four surviving Dionne quintuplets (pictured in 1950), has given birth to twin boys - the first multiple birth for the famous sisters. Her husband, Philippe Langlois, said the boys and their mother were all doing well. The three married quintuplets have a total of seven children. The four sisters were 27 years old May 28. Emilie Dionne died in 1955 as a result of a seizure. The identical Dionne sisters, who were born two months premature in Ontario on May 28, 1934, are the first quintuplets known to have survived their infancy.
