Twin Babies Named Barack Obama & Mitt Romney Have Been Born In Kenya


I, uh, don’t really know what to say about this story but … it’s a very interesting one, that’s for sure. A woman named Millicent Owuor in Nairobi, Kenya gave birth to twin sons this week and she decided to name one of them Barack Obama and the other Mitt Romney. I’m not even kidding here. Perhaps in a spirit of bipartisanship, Millicent decided to try and quell the divide that exists in American politics by naming her sons after the political foes … or maybe the lady is just batshizz crazy but … well, this is a real thing. Click below to see photos of the new mom and her sons Barack and Mitt.

Millicent Owuor, 20, who lives outside of Nairobi, Kenya, gave birth to twin boys and named them after Barack Obama (white blanket) and Mitt Romney (blue blanket).

Firstly, these babies are cute! Much love and congrats goes out to Millicent on the birth of her beautiful babies. BUT, I can’t help but feel bad for lil’ Mitt. While I’m certain that Barack Obama Owuor will grow up with the proud name of the 44th president of the United States of America, Mitt Romney Owuor may grow up less proud that he was named for, well, a political loser (for lack of a better word). Nonetheless, I’m sure the brothers will be raised with love and care … and I’m almost entirely certain these brothers will grow up to be friends and not foes. Yep, almost … certain.

    I have actually heard of this happening before. In some parts of Africa women will name their sons after powerful, western figures, hoping they will become powerful and successful themselves. When I learned this it was because was a little African baby named Bill Clinton.

    The Kenyans (and Tanzanians) love them some Barack Obama. When I was in Kenya and Tanzania there was Obama stuff for sale everywhere. Kengas, posters, t-shirts, pens, buttons, mugs, etc. This was before Mitt was on the presidential scene (2010). I get her naming the one kid Obama, not so much Mitt though.
