The lady discovered she was a lottery winner after checking her lottery ticket the afternoon before and in shock called her husband and told him to get home quickly. Concerned about his pregnant wife and thinking something was seriously wrong he rushed home to find that they had actually won the lottery.

The couple already have one child and the money really couldn’t have come at a better time, with baby number two on the way they were looking at being down to one income and the lottery win means that they can afford to pay off their mortgage and some debts.

It’s  a lovely story and the unnamed couple certainly have a lot to be celebrating this week, with a young healthy family and now a very healthy bank balance to go with it, it’s surely smiles all around in this Wellington household this week.
