The wife of inspirational Christian speaker and author Nick Vujicic, known throughout the world as the “limbless evangelist,” as he was born with no arms and no legs, has given birth to twin girls just days before Christmas.
“Our Identical Double Blessing from Our Gracious and Almighty God! Born Dec 20th – Olivia Mei Vujicic (red bow, 5lbs2oz @ 7:54am) and Ellie Laurel Vujicic (yellow bow, 5lbs14oz @ 7:56am) !!! Mommy (Kanae Vujicic) and Girls doing wonderful,” the evangelist posted on Wednesday on his Facebook page, which is followed by over 9 million people.
Back on Monday, Vujcicic posted another update, with a photo of himself and his wife, Kanae.
“Olivia and Ellie Vujicic, God willing will be born on Wednesday morning. Mommy did so great with the pregnancy!!! Thank God they seem to be healthy! Thank you for your prayers now & during Kanae’s recovery,” he wrote.
He met his wife Kanae Miyahara in 2008 in McKinney, Texas, near Dallas, the Texas-based younger daughter of a Japanese agricultural engineer and a Mexican mother. She had come to hear him give a motivational speech. They married on 12 February 2012. The couple now has four kids, the twins and two sons. They live in southern California.
