Amazing! SA woman gives birth to 10 babies, sets new World Record with Decuplets

A South African woman has given birth to 10 babies, setting a new World Record and surpassing Malian woman Halima Cisse who gave birth to nine children in Morocco in May.

According to an exclusive report from South African local media, Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37, underwent a caesarian operation to give birth to seven boys and three girls.

Reports further indicate that the Sithole and her husband Teboho Tsotetsi were expecting eight babies but two babies had apparently missed the scan due to the fact that they were tucked inside the wrong tube.

Sithole had told local media before the birth of her babies, “I am shocked by my pregnancy. It was tough at the beginning. I was sick. It was hard for me. It’s still tough but I am used to it now. I don’t feel the pain anymore, but it’s still a bit tough. I just pray for God to help me deliver all my children in a healthy condition, and for me and my children to come out alive. I would be pleased about it.”

Speaking to the Pretoria News, her husband, Tsotetsi said Sithole gave birth to their bundles of joy 29 weeks into her pregnancy and that her pregnancy was natural as she was not on any fertility treatment.

Sithole who also has six-year-old twins told journalists of the birth of the decuplets late on Monday night, saying he is ‘happy’ and ’emotional’.

In May, a Malian woman gave birth to nonuplets in Morocco, breaking the record held by an American woman, Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to eight babies in 2009.

Reports show that only two other sets of nonuplets have been recorded since the 1970s, but the babies all died within days.
