Woman Gives Birth To 10 Children at Once, Her Stomach Size During Pregnancy Is Amazing (Photos)

A post is currently trending online of a woman who gave birth to 10 children at once, 7 boys, 3 girls.


A south woman has given birth to nine babies in what could become a world record.

Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37, who is already a mother of twins, gave birth to seven boys and three girls by Caesarean section at a hospital in Pretoria late Monday, her husband said.

The birth is believed to have broken the record held by Halima Cisse of Mali, who gave birth to nine babies at a hospital in Morocco in May.

The new record came as a surprise to Sithole, who is from the province of Gauteng, as doctors had initially told her that she was expecting just six children.


Tebogo Tsotetsi who is currently unemployed, told journalists of the birth of the decuplets late on Monday night, saying he is ‘happy’ and ’emotional’.

According to Tsotetsi, Sithole gave birth to their bundles of joy 29 weeks into her pregnancy.

“It’s seven boys and three girls. She was seven months and seven days pregnant. I am happy. I am emotional. I can’t talk much. Let’s talk again in the morning please,” Tsotetsi told Pretoria News.

MailOnline has been unable to independently verify the birth, because the name of the hospital where it took place has not been made public. 

A fertility doctor who had previously commented on the case has been contacted for verification, but had not responded at the time of publication.


The woman identified as Doris Levi Wilson, now 34 years into her marriage, is a product of God's faithfulness and a testament to the adage that the patient dog eats the fattest bone.

Sharing the post on Facebook, a Bayelsa state journalist by the name Kos-Ikah Onisoman said that Doris' sextuplets came after six years she was delivered of a set of twins.


Guinness World Records is aware of the news that Sithole has given birth to decuplets,” said GWR Limited senior publicist Jessica Dawes based in London.

Our records team, alongside a specialist consultant, are looking into this and will provide any information as soon as possible,” said Dawes.
