Share This



A Nigerian man, Deacon Michael Nwankwo and his wife, Victoria, who welcomed a set of triplets after 25 years of marriage, have opened up about their struggles and triumph. 
We had reported about the Lagos-based businessman and his wife after the dedication of the children at the Assemblies of God Church in Ojodu, on Sunday, February 20, 2022 after welcoming their children in September 2021.
 
Speaking to Punch ,the couple revealed that they both got married as virgins, at age 26 and 24.
The couple also recalled how people mocked them over their situation, adding that Mrs Nwankwo had suffered several miscarriages before the birth of their daughters and son.

According to Nwankwo, his purpose of getting married at a young age was to have children and when that didn't happen sooner than expected, it became tough for them.

"I got married at 26. My wife was 24, and we married as virgins. he said.

Ultimately, the journey was a tough one. I am one person who earnestly desired children, and my purpose of getting married when I did was to have children and see my children and I grow together. I couldn’t imagine it would get to that point where I would have to wait for 25 years. During our first two months in the marriage, my wife got pregnant and unfortunately, due to inexperience we travelled to Ghana and she miscarried the baby. Thereafter, it just went up and down. It was not an easy journey to walk. My joy is that at the end of the day, when it seems like all hope was gone, God brought these triplets – two girls and one boy. he said
Deacon Nwankwo also stated that they had tried a lot of things as a couple to get pregnant, including IVF treatments;
