A Nigerian couple, Adeboye and Ajibola Taiwo have welcomed sextuplets after 17 years of childlessness.
The babies were delivered on the 11th of May at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU Medical Centre where a 40-person team attended to Ajibola.
According to VCU, Ajibola was 30 weeks and 2days pregnant when she had her three boys and three girls by cesarean section. The babies weight ranged from one pound, 10 ounces to two pounds, 15 ounces and they are doing very well despite being premature.

Delivering the babies was said to have taken the effort of several doctors with many hours of planning.
Ajibola Taiwo was discharged on the 18th of May.
On her children, she said,
“I hope for the smallest of my six children to grow up and say ‘I was so small, and look at me now. I want my kids to come back to VCU to study and learn to care for others with the same people who cared for me and my family.”
