A South African mother gives birth to 10 children: a new world record


According to the Daily Mail media, a woman from South Africa claims to have given birth to ten children in what would be the largest live birth in the world, if confirmed by doctors. These births would be the record that puts an end to that of the Malian who recently gave birth to 9 babies.

Already a mother of twins, Gosiame Thamara Sithole, the 37-year-old mother, gave birth Monday, June 7, in the evening to seven boys and three girls by cesarean section in a hospital in Pretoria. It was her husband who spread the news through social media, also speaking to South African journalists.

Tebogo Tsotetsi, who is currently unemployed according to the South African press, said he was happy to have had so many children, revealed Pretoria News in whom he spoke. “It’s seven boys and three girls. She was seven months and seven days pregnant, ”revealed the unemployed Tsotetsi. ” I am happy. I am emotional. I can’t talk much, “said the husband, who needs to know more than anyone else how to take care of his offspring.

His wife, who was initially pregnant with six children, saw her offspring increase by two more before discovering that they were finally 10 during the surgery. The happy mother, Sithole, said she suffered from real prenatal complications, ranging from morning sickness to leg pain. She breaks the birth record in single childbirth held by Malian Halima Cissé, who gave birth to 9 babies last month.
