Pretoria, June 9, 2021 – After a Caesarean delivery of 10 children, Gosiame Thamara Sithole – the new record supermum – will be enjoying a well deserved rest. Together with her husband Teboho Tsotetsi and the first-born, two 6-year-old twins, she will also have to recover from the shock of finding such a large family all at once. Their history has gone around the world, along with photos of Gosiame’s huge belly, but still no pictures of the little guys are available, nor is there any news on their health conditions: in multiple births the newborns are often underweight and need special care, not to mention the fact that the birth was brought forward by a couple of months.
Pending more details, we know that a person in charge of the South African authorities has confirmed the birth to the BBC. Meanwhile, the car is moving Guinness World Record. “Guinness World Records is aware of the news that Gosiame Thamara Sithole has given birth to ten children – we send our congratulations and best wishes to the family,” a spokesman for the records list told the New York Post.
“At the moment, we have yet to verify it as a record since the well-being of both mother and children is of the highest priority – continues the spokesperson – Our archives team together with a specialized consultant is looking into the case“.
The South African couple he did not expect to end up in the record book at all: ultrasound scans during the extraordinary pregnancy had shown first six and then eight babies ready to be born: one less, therefore, than the previous record set just a month ago by 25enne maliana Halima Cisse, who gave birth to nine babies in Morocco. In that case, the photos of the new mother with her children had come out immediately.
Only at the moment of Gosiame’s birth, the doctors realized that the twins were not eight but ten, seven males and three females: never had a woman given birth to so many children together.
