A 68-year-old woman and her husband, 70, have welcomed twins in what doctors are calling a ‘miracle’.

Margarett Adenuga and her husband Noah, from Nigeria, had been trying for a baby for 43 years until they finally had success via IVF with the birth of their twins at Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

Margarett Adenuga and Noah, from Nigeria, had been trying for a baby for the last 43 years. She finally fell pregnant via IVF last year after three failed attempts at the treatment.

The babies were delivered at Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

The mum gave birth to a boy and a girl by c-section at a hospital in Lagos on April 14.

Noah told TVC News he never gave up on having children after being told he would be ‘known across the world’ in a dream in 1996.

Fertility doctors warned the couple the pregnancy would be dangerous for Margarett, however they pressed ahead regardless.

Lagos University Teaching Hospital, which did not carry out the IVF, monitored her condition until she decided to have a cesarean at 37 weeks.

Dr Adeyemi Okunowo, who delivered the babies, described the birth as a ‘miracle’. Noah said he previously travelled to the UK with his wife to undergo a procedure, Mail Online reports.

It is not clear whether they received their latest round of IVF in Britain.
