Johannesburg - The Ekurhuleni quintuplets who made headlines when they were born a year ago are now a year old and giving their parents sleepless nights, literally.
Siyanda, Sibahle, Simesihle, Silindile and Sindisiwe were born on September 6 at Clinix Botshelong Empilweni Private Hospital in Vosloorus last year and were the fifth set of quintuplets to be born in South Africa since 1960.
The births took their parents Prudence and Joe by surprise as they had been expecting triplets.
While Prudence and Joe are enjoying their miracle babies who continue to thrive, they stated that having five babies all at once has taken a strain on their finances and they hardly ever get any sleep too.
“We rotate sleeping,” Joe said.
