Emma and Loma Uhila from Auckland have seven children and two more on the way. They managed to acquire them in just seven years. Pretty decent performance!
The New Zealand couple was made a little easier by the fact that after their eldest son, twins were born three times in a row . And they are expecting a fourth couple any day now.
The first-born Micah was born in 2008. Then the twins, girls Ava and Lily, were born. Isla and Eden were added in 2011, followed two years later by Emme and Indie. They were born on Christmas 2013.
Micah was only eleven months old when his parents found out they were expecting another addition to the family , this time twins. It was a bit of a surprise because no one else in the family has twins. And what if another couple followed, and then another! All the children were ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ naturally , they did not come from ᴀʀᴛɪꜰɪᴄɪᴀʟ ɪɴsᴇᴍɪɴᴀᴛɪᴏɴ.
Currently, the fourth couple is due to be born to the happy parents. As Emma stated earlier, she and her husband are very happy with all their twins .
“Having two children at once means double the kisses and cuddles, love and fun,” the happy mum said. “We are incredibly blessed, it’s like we won the lottery.”
The basis is to observe the time of feeding and sleeping. “It has already become a routine, so the children know exactly what will follow each day. It’s evening, time for dinner, a bath, a story, brushing their teeth, a prayer and a bed. Everyone knows how it goes. If we they forgot, they will remind us themselves,” Mom describes the life of the family.
The current seven siblings get along great . They are close, they represent each other’s best friends. They can entertain themselves for hours without their parents having to attend to them, just by themselves.
Emma’s fifth pregnancy is going smoothly. Everyone in the family tries to help the expectant mother to the best of their ability. Emma’s parents and her sister Victoria do the most.
“It’s wonderful to have my own sister as a babysitter,” Emma boasts. “No one else could have raised my children better. We agree wonderfully, so it works well together. With grandma and grandpa, aunts, uncles, cousins, we form one cohesive family clan .”
It is not easy to support a large family, but the whole neighborhood helps. When Emma was last hoping, Uhil was supported by the Soon to be Seven Givealittle charity page . It ceased operations, but currently the family is supported by merchants from the neighborhood.
