Gosiame Thamara Sithole went viral in the summer of 2021 after claiming she gave birth to 10 babies at once. Some were happy for her and congratulated her while some felt there was something fishy with her story. It didn’t take long for the truth to come to light.
Children are blessings and having 10 kids at once will always be a spectacular event.
In June 2020 it was rumored that a 37 year old woman has just give birth to 10 babies all at once at Steve Biko Academic Hospital in South Africa.
The news was first seen on Pretoria News and if was written by Journalist Piet Rampedi who claimed that the decuplets were delivered on June 7th by Gosiame Thamara Sithole.
According to Pretoria News, Ms. Sithole and her partner Teboho, from a working-class township in the Gauteng province, near Johannesburg, were shocked when they welcomed decuplets after scans showed that she was pregnant with ‘only’ eight babies.
It was like breaking a world record and the news was soon on every headline including international news outlets. It was easier for it to get all the attention as decuplets aren’t a regular occurrence so it was spectacular.
