Tagged 'miracle birth'. the twins come 18 years after the birth of their second child, Abraham (2003) - named Abraham after the late Afenifere leader, Pa Abraham Adesanya.

Their first girl child who was named after her mother, Joe, was born in 2000.

Joe who married Yinka in 1997 and the newborns are said to be in good health, according to the statement shared with her 79.8k followers.

The statement revealed that Yinka did not know he was expecting a set of twins as he took ill and died before hearing the news.

It reads: “The “miracle” birth fulfilled the wishes of the late Odumakin towards the end of his sojourn on earth to have another baby to be named after him.

“After he survived a three-day coma in 2020 and a few months before he succumbed to the illness that eventually but unexpectedly claimed his life, YO, as he is fondly called, developed a strong desire for him and his wife to have another baby.

“Thank God Joe did not dither or procrastinate as she took in just about the time YO took ill and never recovered.

“It was good news that Joe conceived but YO never got to hear the news of his wishes coming to pass as he did not make it out of the ventilator.

“He had, however, prophetically left words concerning what the baby or babies should be called if his wishes materialised.

“YO was so accurate in his predictions that they could be twins (and their sex) that he gave the names of the babies and told his wife how he would raise them.

“While many may interpret this to mean that YO had premonition about his death, it was only a strong desire expressed by him to have babies that he would dot over and who would possibly step into his “aluta” shoes.

“It’s a dream come true!”
