Johannesburg: A South African woman gave birth to ten babies on Monday night, her family and the local government said on Wednesday. ‘We received a call from the hospital informing us of the birth … and received further confirmation from the mother Gosiame Sithole who was still in pain. She and the ten bundles of joy are doing well in the hospital, “the family said in a statement.
Teboho Tsotetsi, Sithole’s husband, said his 37-year-old wife gave birth to the children via a C-section. All babies, seven boys and three girls, are still in the hospital and will stay there until they are stronger.
