A Ghanaian woman has made headlines after giving birth to her third consecutive set of twins. Abigail Adama, 30, who lived in Bradford, welcomed two baby girls, who join a pair of four-year-olds and a pair of 18-month-old twins in the family.
The elated mother and her husband Shaibu Abu-Adama, also 30, told Bradford’s Telegraph and Argus they were astonished when it was revealed that they were expecting another set of twins.
She said: “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.”
Her husband Abu-Adama, a customer service advisor in Leeds, said that the whole family was feeling blessed.
He said: “The doctors cannot believe our run of twins, they ask if we have had any fertility treatment but we have had none at all.
“The other children have been telling their friends about their new sisters and said they look gorgeous.”
The couple moved to the UK from Ghana in 2010, then moved from Slough to Bradford in 2013.
Their oldest siblings are brother and sister, Ohene and Ohenewa, and their middle twins are called Okese and Nana-Oye. The baby girls are yet to be named.
By giving birth to her third consecutive set of twins, the mother has upset odds of 500,000 to one.
