In what could be termed as a reward for patience and steadfastness, a Nigerian woman has delivered a set of sextuplets after 17 years of marriage.

Adeboye Taiwo delivered her six children (three boys and three girls) at the Virginia Commonwealth University Teaching Hospital (VCU) Richmond VA. USA, on May 11

The father-of-six, who disclosed that he was expecting a baby but God gave him the greatest surprise of his life, not one or two, but six kids, is seeking the support of well meaning Nigerians at home and abroad for support.

He said; "I and Ajibola my only wife had been married for 17yrs. This is our first kids. All we were asking God for is at least a child and we never knew they were six until we had an ultrasound. I was short of words when the babies came because God surprised me. 

"The babies were delivered on the 11th of May 2017 at the Labor and Delivery department of Virginia Commonwealth University Teaching Hospital (VCU) Richmond VA. USA.

"My wife is not employed she is a mere housewife. I will need the help of God and support of people to raise these six kids at the same time."
