- They welcomed their triplets on 5 July
- They remain optimistic about the future and look forward to completing their matric
A teenage couple from Blood River village in Limpopo welcomed triplets — two girls and a boy — into their world on 5 July.
19-year-old Nimrod Magolo and 18-year-old Kholofelo Moholola are both Grade 12 pupils at Molautsi Secondary School, Briefly.co.za learned.
The young parents named their bundles of joy Bontle, Tshiamo, and Neo. Speaking to Sowetan Live, they said they have been dating for about a year and a half.
Nimrod and Kholofelo were thankful for their blessings. Kholofelo said:
I thank God for this gift. They are my first babies and I'm happy that they are healthy. I also want to thank the doctor and midwives for the support during my children's birth.
For his part, Nimrod noted how lucky he was:
I'm lucky because not everyone gets to have triplets. I think I took my genes from my father.
Both parents said they are looking forward to completing their matric and are prepared for what the future holds.
Nimrod explained that since he's unemployed, his parents will help care for the triplets as he completes his studies. For the moment, he has not yet decided what to study after matric.
A recent report, which Briefly.co.za covered, revealed that teenage pregnancies are on the rise in South Africa. In Ekurhuleni alone, over 1,000 students fell pregnant in 2017.
