TODD, DANIEL (II), MICHAEL (II), JOSEPH
toddler actors, born August 5, 1967, who played the part of triplet sons of Robbie (Don Grady) and Katie (Tina Cole) Douglas. Joseph played Steve Douglas, II; Michael played Charley Douglas; and Daniel played Robbie Douglas, Jr. from 1970 - 1972 on the TV series, My Three Sons. (Source: Houston Post, Sunday, 2/23/86.)

"Would you belive that the kids who starred as Robbie and Katie's triplets on TV's My Three Sons are alive and well and freshmen at the University of Houston?

Actor Don Grady, who protrayed Robbie Douglas, the boys' father, remembers working with the Todds. 'We has several sets of triplets,' he recalls, 'because the law says that you can only put a baby younger than six months under the lights for like 30 seconds at a time. So when Robbie and Katie first had them, we had half a dozen babies around the set so we could shift one with the other after 30 seconds. But the main triplets (that people remember) was the final set (the Todds)....

The Todd boys began working in front of various cameras at the age of two months. Even though they were a little too old to play newborns when the My Three Sons parts came open, they auditioned anyway and would have gotten the job had 8-month-old Joe not gotten up and started walking, their mother says.

But they were still the best set of blond, blue-eyed boy triplets around. Central casting remembers the Todds and eventually hired them for the show when the boys were 2-1/2 years old. Dan, Joe and Mike continued working until about two years ago, mainly in commercials--they drank lemonade, double-jumped for Double Mint gum, and chewed in unison for Mr. Steak, a West Coast restaurant chain. The Todds moved to Houston some years ago.

Long Beach, California:

LONG BEACH, California:

Shannon Schwartz never imagined her dream of having four children would become reality -- let alone in one day. The 32-year-old South Bay resident gave birth to quadruplets -- three girls and a boy -- Tuesday night at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. And four must be the magic number for Shannon and her husband, David -- the babies were born four hours before their fourth wedding anniversary.

The babies were delivered at nearly 33 weeks -- or about seven months. Kylee Lauren (2 lbs., 4 oz.), Sydney Michele (3 lbs., 10 oz.), Evan Dallas (3 lbs., 7 oz.) and Haley Patricia (3 lbs., 3 oz.) are recovering in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Miller Children's Hospital, located on the Long Beach Memorial campus. Mom, on bed rest for the past 15 weeks, is doing well.

Unlike most quadruplets born today, Shannon did not undergo in vitro fertilization. She merely took the ovulation induction drug Clomid (clomiphene citrate), which carries less than a 1% chance of quadruplets. Because she has been on bed rest, Shannon has been unable to continue working as a second grade teacher. David, a graphic designer, is also currently seeking a position in this line of work. "I'm impressed by Shannon's incredible courage," says perinatologist Tamerou Asrat, M.D., who specializes in high-risk pregnancies and was named by Fit Pregnancy as one of America's Most Beloved Obstetricians. "I'm always really humbled by moms like Shannon."

Clinton Township, USA:

Two boys and two girls were born to Kristen and Marco Mazzola of Clinton Township yesterday (February 1) at St. John Hospital and Medical Center. The quadruplets were delivered by C-section by doctors and nurses under the direction of Gregory Utter, MD, co-director of Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Marco Anthony weighed 3 lbs - 9 oz., Phillip John was 3 lbs - 1 oz, Alexandra Ann weighed in at 3 lbs - 6 oz, and Olivia Michelle was 3 lbs - 1 oz. Mrs. Mazzola carried the babies for about 32 weeks.

"Given the risks involved with having quadruplets, we are very pleased at the outcome of the births. Mom and babies are doing well and the babies are already breathing on their own," said Dr. Utter. All four infants are in good condition in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and are being monitored by nurses and neonatologists John Adams, MD, and Maria Duenas, MD.

Only two other sets of surviving quadruplets have been born at St. John Hospital and Medical Center in recent history. Those were in 1997 and 1986. The chances of having quadruplets born without the assistance of fertility drugs is about one in 500,000. With the advent of fertility drugs, the occurrence is more frequent, but the birth of quadruplets is still considered rare. "The latest statistics available show that there are only 315 quadruplets born each year which represents .008 percent of babies born," Dr. Utter said. It is estimated that the Mazzola babies daily will need up to 40 diaper changes, go through approximately 144 ounces of formula, and eat 20 jars of baby food by their first birthday.
