Despite doctors negative reports, Joseph Yobo's brother and wife welcome "miracle" baby (photos)

Gideon Yobo, 32, and his wife Blessing, 23, are celebrating having their "miracle" baby, Caleb, after defying an array of medical risks during a pregnancy doctors initially said may not go beyond 14 weeks. They are now safely back at their home in Redbrook Way, Heaton, UK.

Doctors had warned against Blessing falling pregnant due to her being diagnosed with lupus, an incurable illness affecting the immune system, and being affected by kidney problems. But despite periods of being very ill during her pregnancy, Caleb was born healthy.

Despite having been made aware of the risks, he said his wife became pregnant after they got married last year. At 10 weeks, Blessing was admitted to hospital, and they're told they should consider terminating the pregnancy as consultants thought the baby would not survive beyond 14 weeks.

Caleb said: "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 wouldn't 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.

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."

  8. Only a fool will say in his heart that there's no God. Science said its impossible for the baby to have survived blah blah blah but Baba said " with me all things are possible".
