After an inquiry, it has been revealed that the woman who claimed to have given birth to 10 kids at once was lying

Gosiame Thamara Sihole gained notoriety in the summer of 2021 when she professed to have given birth to ten babies at once. Some said they were happy for her and congrats, while others believed something was wrong with her account. After that, the facts came to light really quickly.

Children are a blessing, therefore having ten at once will always be a memorable event.

In June 2020, there were rumors circulating about a 37-year-old South African woman giving birth at Steve Biko Academic Hospital to ten babies at once.

The report was written by journalist Piet Rampedi and first ran on Pretoria News. According to him, the decuplets were delivered on June 7 by Gosiame Thamara Sihole.

As scans showed she was expecting “only” eight babies, Ms. Sithole and her partner Tedoho, who were from a working-class township near Johannesburg in the Gauteng region, were taken aback to receive decuplets, according to Pretoria News.

The news soon made headlines in all media, including international ones, as it amounted to breaking a world record. Since decuplets are uncommon, it was simple for it to get all the attention due to its amazing appearance.

According to the news report, the group known as “The Temibsa 10” underwent a cesarean section for their delivery and all seven boys and three girls were born naturally; none of them were the result of infertility treatments.

“My pregnancy has shocked me,” Sithole stated to Pretoria News in June 2021. It was challenging in the beginning. I was unwell. It presented a challenge to me. It’s still challenging, but I’m getting used to it. It’s still difficult, even if it’s not as painful as it previously was. I just beg God to help me give birth to each of my children in good health and to make sure that I survive and that my children survive. I would be thrilled with that.

They were able to care for the children when donations started to stream in from all across the world, totaling over $70,000, according to the BBC.

The story took a questionable turn when it was revealed that Pretoria had neglected to provide the name of the hospital where the decuplets were delivered.No hospital was found to have delivered any decuplets once the Gatueng authorities decided to look into the matter.

It was also discovered that she had never been pregnant, which left many wondering why she felt the need to fabricate stories like these.

When the couple contacted him to claim they had received decuplets, the journalist who first broke the story—the couple’s friend—didn’t bother to confirm the information since he never thought the couple could fabricate anything like that. He went on to apologize to his colleagues and the media.
