Allow us to work together with mother here, because we too are downright exhausted from the ups and downs of the last 24 hours! The scramble to review claims that a Tembisa mother gave birth to TEN babies (decuplets) this week has put the country on a roller coaster ride – but now it seems we have a definitive and ultimately positive answer
Confirmed: Tembisa mother gives birth to ten babies
Gauteng’s Social Development Department was the first government agency to confirm the news – shared with Jacaranda FM – after a whirlwind of speculation cast doubt on the birth of the world record. The 37-year-old mother was originally supposed to have eightlings, but it appears that two other miracles have also welcomed the world.
A very brief statement was issued by the SDD Province confirming that she will become The Mother “Kept in a safe place”. There has never been a record of the birth of decuplets by a human before, and this Gauteng native has done better than the Malian mother who gave birth to NINE babies just last month. Maybe something is in the water?
