- A woman in her seventies has gone viral as she is said to have been pregnant for the past 30 years
- In the heart-touching video, she stated that doctors confirmed that she was due with a male child 6 months into the pregnancy
- The distraught woman said her condition has made life difficult for her as she cannot work or cater for her needs
A 72-year-old woman is finding life difficult and harsh owing to her rare pregnancy condition.
The grandmother has been 'pregnant' for the past 30 years of her life.
In an Instagram video shared by @kingtundeednut, the aged woman could be seen with a protruding stomach as she recounted her situation.
According to her, she took in 6 months after she lost her husband. Upon medical examination, it was confirmed that she was pregnant with a male child.
Problem set in when she checked in at the hospital 6 months later only to be told that what was in her womb has taken another form and is no longer a boy.
Medical doctors told the woman - who mysteriously lost all her kids - that the only way to get the thing in her stomach out was by an operation that has a 50/50 survival rate.
The woman has since resigned to fate hoping to one day be consumed by whatever is in her tummy.
On how she survives, the distraught woman said kind-hearted neighbours provide her meals. Her grandchildren also look after her.
Nigerians have expressed mixed reactions to the story.
"Someone should take her to a good hospital for an operation, that might not be a baby.. maybe its a Tumor."
"She said she’s been pregnant for 30 years??? Lol how?"
"It could be medical condition."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a woman who didn't know she was pregnant had given birth on a flight.
On Wednesday, April 28, the Mounga woman was enjoying a flight to Hawaii with her family when she began having contractions.
Mounga's story went viral after one passenger, identified as Julia Hansen, announced the news on TikTok, saying, 'a baby was just born on this plane.'
In the clip, people could be seen celebrating and congratulating the new mother for her incredible mid-air feat. Hansen revealed that he had sat next to the family during the flight, claiming that even Mounga's husband was not aware of the pregnancy.
