A South African woman has broken a Guinness World Record as she gave birth to 10 babies at once, according to a local media report. Teboho Tsotetsi, Sithole's husband, said his 37-year-old wife delivered the children via a C-section. All babies, seven boys and three girls, are still in hospital and would remain there until they are stronger.

According to BBC, a South African has confirmed the birth of 10 children, while another official said that they are yet to see the babies. Meanwhile, Guinness World Records said that it was investigating the claim, reported the British media network.

"We received a call from the hospital informing us of the birth ... and got further confirmation from the mother Gosiame Sithole who was still in pain. She and the 10 bundles of joy are doing well and still in hospital," said the family in a statement, ANI reported.

The Guinness World Records for most children delivered at a single birth to survive is currently held by Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to six boys and two girls in California, US, in 2009. Suleman's babies were conceived with the aid of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment and were nine weeks premature when they were delivered by Caesarean section.

Last month, a 25-year-old Malian woman had given birth to nine babies, two more than doctors had detected during medical scans.
