Tyne Rogers, a 30-year-old soldier who lost his leg after stepping on an explosive in Afghanistan, has welcomed triplets.
After stepping on an explosive in 2011, Rogers feared he would not have a family but he met his wife in 2013 and they had two children, The Sun reports.
YEN.com.gh gathers that the triplets joined Roger's family in April, making it a family of seven, the parents inclusive.
He said: "It is hard to comprehend what I have been through, it is a bit of a blur but I remember the day I stepped on the explosive.
"Doctors didn't know if the explosive had affected my fertility and at the time as the impact of standing on a bomb could have ruined my sperm count completely.
"It was a lot for me to deal with, never mind somebody else, so I didn't want to become a burden to anyone."
