A couple from Ohio, US is counting their blessings twice after learning they will finally be parents.
Hannah and Jacob Merton got married in 2017 aged 18 and 19 and tried desperately to grow their family in vain.
The two told news5cleveland that they always wanted a big family but sadly life kept dealing them hard blows each time they tried for a baby.
Hannah, who has seven siblings, always wanted to be a mother of twins.
“We tried expanding our family for a year and it just was not happening for us,” the mum-to-be said.
Even though they kept facing rejection and disappointment, the sweethearts did not lose hope and chose to seek medical intervention.
They visited a fertility specialist who asked them to use Letrozole, a fertility treatment drug.
In October 2019, their lives changed forever when the duo learnt their prayers had been answered. They were pregnant!
Hannah described it as a surreal moment and she almost passed out from the shock that hit her.
Initially, it was presumed the Ohio lovebirds were going to be parents to twins just like they had always hoped.
But, their blessings doubled and an ultrasound showed three more babies.
According to an excited Hannah, their sonographer was left in shock when she even had to sit down to process the good news.
“She kept looking and she was measuring and counting and re-counting and finally after it was over, she had to pull up a chair because she was so shocked,” Hannah narrated.
Jacob and his wife revealed they are expecting two sons and three daughters and the two could not be happier.
They expect to welcome their babies on June 16.
So far, Hannah has not experienced any complications yet and hopes to have an easy delivery.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a couple in Wisconsin that has a set of triplets beat incredible odds by naturally conceiving another set of triplets and delivering the babies after 15 months of welcoming the first set.
The couple identified as Tyana Stanton and Jarrel Covington have a daughter named Kyhlee, who is their first child.
