Nigerian couple in America has sextuplets (three boys and three girls) after 17-year childlessness (Video)

A Nigerian couple who tried for nearly two decades to conceive has welcomed a set of sextuplets in Richmond, Virginia, United States of America.

Mr. Adeboye Taiwo and his wife, Ajibola, tried for 17 years to have children. In January, they learned they were expecting six babies.

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

The babies, three boys and three girls, range in weight from 1 pound, 10 ounces (less than one kilogram), to 2 pounds, 15 ounces (1.0489kg), according to VCU Medical Centre in Richmond, Virginia.

“We’re going through this extraordinary journey together with the family,” Ronald Ramus, M.D., director of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at VCU Medical Centre, said in the hospital’s press release.

“It’s not every day that parents bring home sextuplets. Mrs. Taiwo was eating, sleeping and breathing for seven. A lot of the support and encouragement we gave her to make it as far as she did was important, and one of the biggest contributions we made as a team.”

“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.”

Ajibola was discharged from the hospital May 18, but the sextuplets remain in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

All six babies are “doing well and continue to thrive” in the neo-natal intensive care unit, according to VCU.
