After 17 years of marriage with hope, a Nigerian couple, Adeboye and Ajibola Taiwo, has been blessed with sextuplets.

The children were delivered at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Centre.

According to the university, the babies weighed between 1 pound, 10 ounces and 2 pounds, 15 ounces.

All six are doing well and continue to thrive in the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU neonatal intensive care unit.

In November 2016, the couple were overcome with joy when they saw four heartbeats at their first ultrasound.

When they arrived VCU Medical Centre two months later, they discovered they were expecting sextuplets.

“I was excited. For the very first time we were expecting,” Adeboye said.

A 40-man medical team which included experts from maternal-fetal medicine, labour and delivery, nursing, anaesthesia, respiratory, neonatal medicine, social work, nutrition, cardiology and chaplain services, helped to deliver the babies in the morning of May 11, 2017.

Adeboye said everyone performed beyond his expectations from the time they arrived at VCU Medical Centre.

“The medical team is excellent in medicine and hospitality.”

“We are far from home but the medical team is our family. That is what got us this far.”

Ajibola was discharged from the hospital May 18. She and her husband actively participate in the sextuplets’ care in the NICU.

“I hope for the smallest of my six children to grow up and say ‘I was so small, and look at me now’. 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,” Ajibola said. (NAN)
