I want to have more children, God will provide for them - Woman who gave birth to 17 kids says in video
Idowu stated that they could not seek the alternative to abort because that would be sinning against their God who 'placed' the babies in her womb.
Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported about the delivery, revealing that the births happened on Thursday, March 4.
On her part, Funmilayo disclosed that when she had a scan, only three babies were in her. On the day of the delivery, things changed and the kids turned five.
The medical doctor, Afolabi Sikirullahi, in charge confirmed her story, saying the parents had to go get extra clothes for the two more babies.
Days after the delivery, one of the kids died, a situation that dampened the joy of the parents.
Idowu added that they ought to have left the hospital a long time ago but the inability to foot their medical bills kept them there.
The father went ahead to say feeding is even a problem, disclosing how they have been surviving on the food people brought.
