'Bumblebee! You've Got Babies!': Rescuer Joyful as Orphaned Sheep Gives Birth to Twins

A farmer who raised a sheep since it was an orphaned lamb was overjoyed that the animal, named Bumblebee, had given birth to its own lambs.

Chris Franklin, who runs a rescue farm in Wiltshire, England, can be heard praising the new mother in video posted to Instagram on June 28.

“It’s amazing. Bumblebee, you’ve got babies, you’ve got twins,” Franklin says in the video. “She’s got two little girls just born, a little white one and little black one.”

Bumblebee’s first lambs were just 15 minutes old in the video, according to Franklin, who said it was “super exciting.” Credit: @caenhillcc / @caroline.le.bourgeois via Storyful
