    Congratulations but I feel sorry for her. Baby products are very expensive and our economy is not good either.

    Children are a blessing but hopefully this wasn't done through fertility treatment. It's irresponsible on the part of the doctors

    The country is over populated, the world is over populated, pollution and shortage of resources are everywhere, nature is being destroyed. Wild life if endangered. Let's control the population.
