CHURWELL, England, Jan. 1 (UPI) -- A British couple who were told their chances of having children were less than 1 percent said it was a "miracle" when they conceived naturally.
Nicola and Karl Medina of Churwell, England, said they spent $65,000 on fertility treatments and underwent five unsuccessful cycles of in-vitro fertilization before doctors told them Nicola's chances of getting pregnant were less than 1 percent, the Yorkshire Evening Post reported Tuesday.
The couple said they were shocked to learn they had conceived naturally on their Aug. 11 wedding night.
"It's a miracle. When we found out the dates, for us to conceive on the wedding night is amazing," Nicola Medina said.
Karl Medina said he was overjoyed at the news.
"I would've married her seven years before if I'd known this was going to happen," he said.
He said he received the news while working at his renovations firm and burst into tears in front of his customers.
"I know you normally leave it until 12 weeks, but I just wanted to scream and shout," he said.
