A surrogate mother identified as Jemma Browne has become one of the first in the United Kingdom to deliver triplets.
The 30-year-old woman, who has three children of her own and has been a surrogate before, delivered the triplets (all girls) at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital on October 13.
The parents of the triplets, identified as Andrew and Wayne, were unable to be at the birth due to Covid-19 restrictions, Mirror reports.
Recalling the experience Jemma said:
“It was very exciting because they don't normally deliver triplets at Grimsby. Everyone on Blueberry ward was wonderful. I asked them if they would all sing along to Baby Shark for me, which they did.”
The girls, who were born by caesarean section, are now being looked after by the staff at Grimsby's Family Service Department and Andy and Wayne.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that a 54-year old Nigerian woman, Funmi Ajagbe, gave 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 God is.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that Jennifer Aniston took to social media recently to caution Americans against voting for rapper Kanye West. The actress revealed that she voted for Democrat candidate Joe Biden.
She shared a snap of herself mailing her ballot. The Hollywood star captioned her post:
"#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early. I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever."
Jennifer discouraged her followers from voting for Kanye but urged them to vote responsibly instead.
"It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible."
