Joe Odumakin’s wife, Yinka Odumakin, Has Twins In The United States
NewsReport gathered that Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, the widow of the late Afenifere spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin, gave birth to bouncing twins – a boy and a girl – on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, in a hospital in the United States of America.
Both the mother and the infants are in good health.
The “miracle” delivery fulfilled the late Odumakin’s wish, near the conclusion of his earthly journey, to have another baby named after him.
The pair married in 1997, had their first child, a girl, in 2000, and their second child, a boy, in 2003. While the daughter was named after Joe, the boy was named after Pa Abraham Adesanya, the late Afenifere leader.
The twins arrive 18 years after the previous births.
After he survived a three-day coma in 2020 and a few months before he succumbed to the illness that eventually but unexpectedly claimed his life, YO, as he is fondly called, developed a strong desire for him and his wife to have another baby.
Thank God Joe did not dither or procrastinate as she took in just about the time YO took ill and never recovered.
It was good news that Joe conceived but YO never got to hear the news of his wishes coming to pass as he did not make it out of the ventilator.
He had, however, prophetically left words concerning what the baby or babies should be called if his wishes materialized.
YO was so accurate in his predictions that they could be twins (and their sex) that he gave the names of the babies and told his wife how he would raise them.
While many may interpret this to mean that YO had a premonition about his death, it was only a strong desire expressed by him to have babies that he would dot over and who would possibly step into his “aluta” shoes.
It’s a dream come true!
