Woman gives birth to 10 children, sets new Guinness World Record

A South African woman has given birth to 10 children at the same time, setting a Guinness World Record.

"Her wife has given birth to 10 children," said Tebogo Tsotetsi, husband of Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37. 

According to Tebogo Tsotetsi, his wife has given birth to seven boys and three girls through a Cesarean delivery.

Last month, a woman in Morocco gave birth to nine children and was named in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Sithole, who has six-year-old twins, previously told an international news outlet that her pregnancy was natural as she was not on fertility treatment.

Speaking to the media, Tsotetsi said Sithole gave birth to their bundles of joy 29 weeks into her pregnancy.

"There are seven boys and three girls," he said. The wife was seven months and seven days pregnant. I'm very happy, I'm getting emotional right now, I can't talk much. '

In an interview last month, Sethol said she was "shocked" when doctors said after a medical scan that she had six children.

"Initially it was very difficult and she fell ill," she said. I always prayed that the children would be healthy and that the stage of motherhood would pass easily.

Sithole has broken the record of most children born at the same birth held by Cissé, who gave birth to nine children (nonuplets) at a hospital in Morocco last month.
