A Nigerian photographer who was contracted to handle a birthday ceremony for two adorable twin sisters has shared an emotional tale of the kids and their family.
In a post on Facebook, the man disclosed how the twins’ mother waited for seventeen (17) years before getting pregnant again after she and the husband had their first child. Moreover, the pregnancy went beyond the traditional 9-months gestation period before the twins were born three years later.
For this reason, when the kids had their birthday recently on Tuesday (June 2), the birthday party literally became a funeral ground fraught with tears from the parents and close family members as they recounted the troubles they went through before having these kids.
The photographer who shared photos from the birthday party in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, said the couple’s first child is already in the university.
He wrote; ”The story of this family is so unique.
She had to wait for 17 years before having them. Her first child is already in the university. She carried the pregnancy for more than three years.
Though it was more of a crying party as I couldn’t get the pictures I wanted, yet their story is worth sharing…Congratulations mummy Chinwe Ezennia Ogbeide.”
