What you need to know:

John and Maggie were devastated by the loss of their first born daughter who the mother had carried to term. A year later, they tried for another child and the doctor told them they were carrying three babies, only for Maggie to give birth to four.

John Momanyi and Maggie Obegi, both Kenyan, were excited at the prospect of becoming parents in 2018.
