Siaya,Kenya: A woman from Siaya delivered twins on the day Barack Obama was re-elected US president, and named them after him and his rival Republican Mitt Romney.

Millicent Owuor aged 20 delivered the twins at Siaya District Hospital, just a stone throw away from Obama’s ancestral home village of Kogelo where celebrations were going on.

A joyful Owuor posed for photographers holding her bundles of joy, and she will remember the historic US elections for a long time, both the winner and the loser.
