According to Babatunde, three years after their marriage, they wrote a letter to Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) requesting for prayers.

He said: "Daddy wrote back to us that we should be attending the Holy Ghost Service."

Opeyemi said they commenced IVF, but they all failed.

Babatunde said: "Almost 17 years into our marriage, we wrote back to Pastor Adeboye, that 'Daddy, God told you that we should expect the miracle children, we are still expecting them.'"

They said the three stones were covenant between them and God. The couple also said they began to buy things in three to tell God that the items bought would be used by their children.
