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.
Briefly.co.za 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."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that a woman with the Facebook name Oby Evelyn has given birth to a set of triplets after 14 years of marriage and trying to conceive.
In her Facebook post on Friday, 19 June, 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 girls and a boy.
