South Africans ready to throw a national baby shower for Gauteng woman who gave birth to 10 babies
locial media users have reacted to a report of a Pretoria woman who allegedly gave birth to 10 children, offering to throw a “national baby shower”. The Pretoria News reported on Tuesday that Gosiame Thamara Sithole gave birth to the youngsters at an unnamed Pretoria hospital, breaking a record. The publication claimed it interviewed the couple at their Tembisa home last month, but delayed publishing the interview “at the request of the couple for safety and cultural reasons”. Gosiame Thamara Sithole “It is seven boys and three girls. She was seven months and 7 days pregnant. i’m happy. i’m emotional.
I can’t talk much. Let’s talk again within the morning please,” the woman’s husband, Teboho Tsotetsi, was quoted as saying. However the director-general of state communications Phumla Williams said the govt couldn’t verify the report “The posts attribute the birth of the babies to Gosiame Thamara Sithole from Gauteng. Government has been unable to verify the authenticity of this birth at our facilities. we’d like to verify this story and supply assistance where needed,” said Williams.
Social media was during a celebratory mood and flooded Twitter with ideas for a “national baby shower” to supply support for the couple. After Lucky Star offered the couple a year’s supply of pilchards, social media users called on other brands to also help.
A whole school of nunu’s!☺️
Congratulations x10 ausi Gosiame & bhut Tebogo! We’ll make sure all of your bundles of joy are well nourished by #ThetasteOfHome.
