Roseni dos Santos Silva, 38, is already a mother of five children and is now pregnant with quadruplets. The housewife and her husband, security guard Everton Leite da Silva, 35, live in Sinop, 503 km from Cuiabá, and faced this sudden increase in the family with “surprise”. Delivery is scheduled for September 30.
She is from Altamira, Pará, but was invited by her brother to move to Mato Grosso in August 2021. When she arrived in the city, her sister-in-law got Roseni a job at a hotel and it was there that she met her husband.
Roseni and Everton moved in together after three months of dating. At the end of 2021, the woman felt the first signs of pregnancy.
“I took several exams. The first one was negative, but he continued to feel very ill. In one of these exams, it was identified that they were two babies. Then I took another test that already showed three babies and I started to get scared. In the last one, it showed that, in fact, there were four babies. It was a surprise,” she reported.
The housewife already has five children – two married and three living with her ex-husband – and believed that she would not experience a new pregnancy, as she underwent two surgeries to remove ovarian cysts and, on several occasions, heard of doctors that it would be very difficult to have more children. But to her and her husband’s surprise, two girls and a boy are on their way. The family still doesn’t know the sex of the fourth baby.
“My husband still doesn’t have children, but in his family there are cases of twins. His brothers already have twins, but now we are expecting four,” he said.
Roseni and Everton are happy but at the same time worried. She is currently not working and her husband has health problems and needs surgery.
“I have a heart problem. Thank God, I received some donations and took the exams. But we are in dire need of crib donations, diapers, making their room,” he explained.
The arrival of the babies is scheduled for September this year. — Photo: Granted
