- Many were inspired by the news as some of them reflected on how bad conditions are never permanent
A 54-year old Nigerian woman, Funmi Ajagbe, has given birth to a set of triplets with her first pregnancy, a thing that does not usually happen.
The new mother’s friend, Odunayo Olupona, took to Facebook to disclose that Funmi welcomed her babies despite the long wait.
In her post on Tuesday, August 11, she posed a rhetorical question, asking: "Is there anything too hard for God to do?" as she emphasised with Yoruba praise words how great He is.
She said that the newborns are all same gender, boys. Odunayo said her case is a perfect example that no matter how rough the road is, joy always comes at last.
The friend added not only has God given her extraordinary gifts with the babies, but her name has also changed.
"Ara ę dide, ę ba mi jo. Aribiti! Arabata! Ęyin ni Atobiju!
"....Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning! Triplets@54! First-time pregnancy! 3 boys! Congratulations my friend! God win! Funmi Ajagbe, well done," her post partly read.
Since the Facebook post went up, people have thronged it with congratulatory messages.
Below is Odunayo's post:
Below are the reactions from well-wishers:
It was earlier reported that a woman identified as Oby Evelyn also gave birth to a set of triplets after 14 years of marriage and trying to conceive.
In her Facebook post on Friday, June 19, she said her “mouth is full of praise of joy”, adding that nothing is as great as the moment she is in.
Evelyn said that God has used the births to compensate her for her years of mockery and shame. She added that the genders of the babies are two gi*rls and a boy.
The proud mother said that it is really a dream come true for her, thanking God for the bundles of joy He has blessed her with.
Those were not the only occasions Nigerian women birthed three babies at once. A woman who is known as Chidinma Janefrances Edeh also shared the good news of her friend giving birth.
An excited Chidinma noted that she is the happiest woman in the world following the birth of her friend’s triplets.
