A couple in Benin, Nigeria has welcomed a set of quadruplets in addition to their six children.
Speaking with Briefly.co.za, the husband, identified as Austin Ohenhen, said he ran away for a while after hearing the news. According to Austin, he returned home after words of encouragement from friends and family.
Also speaking, the new mum said when she was pregnant, she contemplated abortion but there was no money to go ahead with it.
The 35-year-old mother-of-10 said since the arrival of the quadruplets, God has been blessing the family.
She, however, called on others to come to their rescue as she and her husband are currently unemployed and need assistance to take care of the babies. According to the new mum, she got married to her husband in 2005 and planned to give birth to four children.
In more positive news about quadruplets, Briefly.co.za reported that a Twitter user with the handle @sofiwoozie has taken to the microblogging site to celebrate her quadruplets who clocked ten.
She shared beautiful pictures of the kids on her page and wish them many more decades to celebrate. Three of the quadruplets are girls while one of them is a boy.
The proud mom captioned the post:
"The big 10 is finally here! God bless you my precious ones and grant you many more decades, each more pleasant than the last."
As expected, Twitter users took to the comment section to congratulate the kids on their 10th birthday.
As congratulations poured in, tweeps were quick to remind the mum about the school fees she has to pay for the quadruplets.
A user with the handle @Jibiya03 wrote:
"Oh wow, 4 strong Blessings, Chai and 4 strong school fees. God bless and keep them in sound health and shine His light continually upon them 4-fold."
