- Teenager says she was divinely impregnated
- Adds that she will call for paternity test after delivery to confirm her statement
- Doctor says her pregnancy as a virgin has been confirmed
Latifah Smith-Nabengana, a pregnant 15-year-old teenager from Ohio has claimed that Jesus Christ is the father of her unborn baby.
According to her, an angel, during an encounter in July 2015, 'divinely impregnated' her while explaining that she she had been chosen to bear a child for Jesus Christ.
World News Daily Report quoted her to have said: "He told me that he was a Nephilim, like those described in the Bible.
"He told that he had a message from Jesus, He said that I was going to be pregnant, and that I would give birth to a son, Jesus’ son."
According to the Bible in Genesis 6:4, "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown."
Everyone in her family has since shown support for her since she announced it to them.
Dr William Franklin Murphy, who has been monitoring the teenager's pregnancy, informed that he is aware of her version, but is unable to either confirm or invalidate her claims.
The gynecologist said: "For all I know, her pregnancy seems normal. Her claims of 'Virgin pregnancy' are technically true, but that doesn’t mean there was a divine intervention. I can tell you that it’s a boy, but there no way for me to determine if it is Jesus’ son until he is born. If she asks for a DNA test at that time, then we can tell you who the father is."
The doctor, being aware of some laws concerning medical secrets, refused to discuss any detail concerning the young woman’s pregnancy.
The young lady has further stated that she wants a paternity test as soon as her son is born, just to show that she was not hallucinating with her claims.
