South Africa, Mrs Sithole’s 10 twins
Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37, gave birth to her twins – two more than doctors had previously predicted based on diagnostic tests – in a Pretoria hospital last night, according to her husband Teboho Tsotetsi, who told the paper.
Speaking to the Pretoria News last night, Tsotetsi said Sithole gave birth to their bundles of joy 29 weeks after the start of her pregnancy.
“They are seven boys and three girls. She was seven months and seven days pregnant. I am happy. I am emotional. I can’t talk much. Let’s talk again in the morning, please,” Tsotetsi said.
