A Ghanaian elder in the Church of Pentecost called Mr Kenneth Amoabeng and his wife, Mrs Vera Amoabeng, have given birth to five children at once.
According to reports sighted by Briefly.co.za on the Instagram handle of factsandtruths_official as well as celebritiesbuzz.com.gh, the couple had been married for eight years without a child.
The five children were christened during a naming ceremony that was held at the Tema Community 1 Assembly of the Church of Pentecost, opposite the Full Gospel Church International.
See the photos below:
In the shots shared on social media, three other family members assisted the couple to present all the babies at the altar for prayers.
Although Mr and Mrs Amoabeng were spotted looking calm in the photo taken during the naming ceremony, one can only imagine the overflowing joy in their hearts.
In Ghana, bearing children after their wedding is a big deal for many people despite protracting advocacies for couples to be given the space to give birth as they can or please.
A 54-year-old woman, Funmi Ajagbe, has given 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, 11 August, she posed a rhetorical question, asking:
"Is there anything too hard for God to do?" as she emphasised with Yoruba praise words how great He is.
She said that the newborns are all same gender - boys. Odunayo said her case is a perfect example that no matter how rough the road is, joy always comes at last. The friend added not only has God given her extraordinary gifts with the babies, but her name has also changed.
"Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning! Triplets@54! First-time pregnancy! Three boys! Congratulations my friend! God win! Funmi Ajagbe, well done," her post partly read.
