Couple Has Sextuplets After Trying To Conceive For 17 Years
For 17 years, Adeboye and Ajibola Taiwo dreamed of having a baby — now they have six. At 8:26 am on May 11, Ajibola, a native of Nigeria, gave birth to three boys and three girls “all in good condition and absolutely adorable,” according to CNN.
After 30 weeks and two days of pregnancy, the babies were delivered by cesarean section at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. It wasn’t until earlier this year that the pair actually found out they were expecting sextuplets. At their first ultrasound in November, the couple only heard four heartbeats. But at a follow-up appointment in early 2017 they found out there were two more babies in Ajibola’s belly.
“I was excited,” Adeboye said in a news release.”For the very first time we were expecting.”
“I hope for the smallest of my six children to grow up and say ‘I was so small, and look at me now,’” said Ajibola. “I want my kids [to] come back to VCU to study and learn to care for others with the same people who cared for me and my family.”
