A physically-impaired lady identified as Agaezichi Oliver Joy found the love of her life on Facebook and started a family with him after people thought it was impossible.
Agaezichi, a student of history and international relations at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, is suffering from spinal muscular atrophy.
In an interview with BBC News Africa, the young lady said the father of her child, Oshian Abraham, has been a supportive boyfriend, adding that he was by her side during the pregnancy period.
Despite her condition, Agaezichi's pregnancy period was painless. The woman said if God allows, she would like to have another child.
Speaking about his love for Agaezichi, Oshian said he grew in love with the young lady and only one of his friends knew about it.
Oshian's friend faulted his decision to be in a relationship with Agaezichi, but the young man stood his ground.
The young man wants God to bless him so he could get married to the love of his life.
