Gideon Yobo & Wife, Blessing Announce They are Expecting Baby No. 2 in the Most Inspiring Way

Gideon Yobo, the younger brother of footballer, Joseph Yobo, and his wife, Blessing, who got married in June, 2015 in Liverpool, are going to be welcoming another child very soon.

His stunning wife, Blessing, announced the exciting news via her Instagram page in the cutest way.

The expectant mother posted a family photo in which her burgeoning baby bump was visible and she captioned it“….and then there were 4 ????‍????‍????‍???? Thankful & Blessed”.

She also shared a photo of herself, debuting her bump in style.

The couple had their first child, a baby boy they named Caleb, last year.

Before they had Caleb, Blessing, 24, had been diagnosed with Lupus, an incurable illness affecting the immune system and was advised not to get pregnant as it might endanger her health.

Despite doctor’s warning, she got pregnant and when her pregnancy was 10 weeks old, she was admitted into the hospital.

She was, however advised by her doctor in the UK to get rid of the pregnancy as the baby would not survive beyond 14 weeks.

”The doctors suggested we should think of stopping the pregnancy, but we both decided beforehand that whatever happens, whatever the risks, we would carry on. We just knew it would not end up in disaster and put our trust in God. Everyone was shocked when she got to 20 weeks, and then we just carried on,” Gideon, entrepreneur revealed in an interview with Telegraph & Argus.

Doctors at the BRI monitored Blessing very closely throughout her pregnancy, and despite periods where they admitted she had been ”very ill”, she was successfully induced at 37 weeks.

”When Caleb was born, everything was just perfect. They did tests on him, some of them, three or four times, and the doctors couldn`t believe he had come out fine. Some people would have given up, but we were determined not to. We held on to our faith and beliefs and followed our gut instinct. She is doing fine, and Caleb is just fantastic. We registered him the other day and the medical records are flawless, everything is Ok. I always knew he would be a Miracle baby, and that`s what the doctors said he was. They said they could not believe our determination and belief, but Caleb just shows that miracles do happen.”

Congratulations to the strong couple as they anticipate the birth of their newborn.
