A Ghanaian woman living in the UK with her husband has astounded nurses and upset odds of 500,000 to one by giving birth to her third consecutive set of twins.
Abigail Adama, 30, gave birth at Bradford Royal Infirmary to the baby girls, who as yet have not been named. She and her husband Shaibu Abu-Adama, who moved to Bradford from Ghana in 2013, have a pair of four-year-olds and a pair of 18-month-old twins. Their oldest twins are brother and sister, Ohene and Ohenewa, and their second twins are Okese and Nana-Oye.
“We thought we were done with two sets, and then all of a sudden I realised I was pregnant again; it was a big shock and I cried because I was was not expecting it.
The other kids are so happy to have two new baby sisters and could not wait to see them for the first time.”
