Ajibola Taiwo had almost everything she could wish for: a job she enjoyed, a loving husband, and a wonderful home. Despite this, Ajibola and her partner Adeboye were still one piece of the puzzle away from eternal happiness: they both wanted children! The Nigerian couple tried for years to fulfill their dream, but it seemed as though they were cursed. Children were simply not going to be part of their destiny…
Though they were both happy, Adeboye’s family and friend pressed him to find a “fertile” woman and leave Ajibola. Ignoring their pleas, he made it known to them how much he adored her, assuring them that these matters take time and a baby would be on the way. For 17 fruitless years, they had tried everything, including in-vitro fertilization, hormone therapy, and countless examinations. These treatments don’t come cheap and the couple were forced to spend over $155,000 with no reward for their efforts. But then after almost two decades of struggling to conceive, the seemingly impossible happened and Ajibola was finally pregnant. And boy was she that! Four little miracles were now growing inside of her — or so she thought.
The surprising news only became more astonishing: Ajibola was actually expecting six little bundles of joy! After the initial shock, the couple’s happiness became tinged with a fair measure of trepidation. At the end of the day, giving birth to one child is hard enough, let alone having six. The doctors were also bowled over by this extremely rare discovery.
However, the sextet didn’t give their parents much time to worry as their birth was planned for 30 weeks into the pregnancy. With births of this kind being highly complicated, the Taiwos travelled to the United States where a nationwide team of specialists took care of this most unusual of deliveries. On May 11, 2017, the birth had all 40 staff at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Hospital working flat out and focusing on the tricky job at hand. See the wonderful results for yourself!
