A South African woman claims to have given birth to 10 babies at once, breaking the Guinness World Record held by Malian Halima Cisse – who gave birth to nine children in Morocco last month.

The woman has been identified as Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37.

She initially thought she was going to have eight babies.

According to the New York post, when she gave birth, Ms. Sithole and her family were surprised to see 10 babies emerge – two more than previous scans had shown.

Teboho Tsotetsi, her husband told the Pretoria News after the birth of the decuplets, “It’s seven boys and three girls. She was seven months and seven days pregnant. I am happy. I am emotional,”

The pregnancy was normal and Ms. Sithole already has six-year-old twins.

Ms Sithole said she was shocked at her pregnancy, “I was convinced that if it was more, it would be twins or triplets, not more than that. When the doctor told me, I took time to believe it,” she said.

If confirmed, Gosiame Thamara Sithole’s 10-child delivery will be the first-known case of decuplets.

 A spokesperson for the records listing said, “Guinness World Records is aware of the news that Gosiame Thamara Sithole has given birth to decuplets, and we send our congratulations and best wishes to the family.”
