A Kenyan couple is elated after welcoming their first child together after waiting for 16 years.
Dickson and Judy Nyanyuki met during a church service 16 years ago and after dating for seven years, they decided to formalise their relationship and started living as husband and wife.
However, several years into their marriage and they were not blessed with a baby but they kept hope alive that one day, they will have a baby to show.
Judy noted that at some point, she was forced to seek medical assistance after which she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
“I went to the hospital and was diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and was given medication for it. As I approached 40years, my hope dwindled and I began to accept my fate,” she said.
Shortly after, Judy was surprised to learn that she was pregnant while processing a visa in hospital.
“I could not believe it. I enjoyed every moment of the pregnancy and did not have the typical symptoms. Our baby girl was born via ceasarean section and we cannot thank God enough for the blessing. We named her blessing,” she added.
Interestingly, in a story that could easily feature in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, Nicci Garlic and Kelsie welcomed their bundle of joy just hours after Nicci discovered that she was pregnant.
The arrival of their son whom they named Charlie came as a surprise because they had faced pregnancy difficulties since getting married in 2014.
While nine months pregnant, although she did not know, Nicci who is a teacher was going about her day-to-day activities when she started complaining of stomach pains.
She left school and headed to a local health facility where she was told that she was pregnant.
