Hint: it was not for being in show business.

These are the Dionne sisters! They were the first quintuplets known to survive through infancy. Yvonne, Annette, Cécile, Émilie, and Marie Dionne were born in Canada in 1934. They arrived two months prematurely to Elzire Dionne who was certain that she was carrying twins. Imagine the surprise in that delivery room.
