WATCH | Four-year-old predicts surprise lockdown twin pregnancy


Samantha and Lois are now a family of six because of their younger daughter's predictions. Samantha had previously struggled to conceive, and her four year old daughter Eliyanah was conceived through IVF.

According to Samantha, the four year old told her mom one morning, "You have a baby boy and a baby girl in your tummy, mommy". Eliyanah even predicted the babies due date.

When she was asked how she knew all of this, she said that God had told her. 

Three months into lockdown, in April, Samantha woke up to dizziness, vomiting and the urge to push. At the hospital, Samantha was given drugs to halt the labour as she was only at around 28 weeks pregnant.

Despite this intervention the twins where born early, on 27 April 2020. Weighing just over 900g each they were able to fit into the palm of a hand, and were put into intensive care.

Samantha and Lois say that their journey to parenthood has been "one of faith", and now the proud parents are happy with their large, healthy family.
