On Father's Day, limbless evangelist Nick Vujicic has announced over social media that he and his wife could be expecting twins. Vujicic is an Australian Christian evangelist and motivational speaker born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of arms and legs.
"Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there! Today was an exceptionally extra special Father's Day for me, after we recently just found out something extraordinary!" Vujicic said in a message he posted on Facebook Sunday, along with a 22-second video.
The short video shows Vujicic looking at the camera, before it pans to an ultrasound image on a monitor.
"Third time around," the evangelist says, likely referring to the third time he and his wife, Kanae, have gone for an ultrasound test, with their fist son, Kiyoshi, born in February 2013, and their second son, Dejan, in September 2015.
"So, when you talk about being fertile...what exactly were you referring to?" a female is heard saying in the video.
"You have twins here," the voice, presumably the ultrasound technician, announces.
Vujicic added in his Facebook post: "Thank you for your continued prayers for our growing family! God is good!"
Vicjicic's physical condition had made him feel so miserable that he even contemplated suicide when he was eight years old. However, his deep-rooted faith in God helped Vujicic turn his disability into a blessing and he formed the non-profit organisation Life Without Limbs when he was only 17 years old. Now, he works as a motivational speaker and goes around the world to serve as a living testament of God's love and grace.
On 12 February 2012, Vujicic married Kanae Miyahara. The couple has two sons and live in Southern California.
