The South African mom who allegedly gave birth to ten babies spoke out against the father and his family for wanting to get rich through the babies.


Gosiame Sithole, 37, claimed in a Twitter video posted by South African journalist Piet Rampedi that her boyfriend, Tebogo Tsotetsi, had expected to get rich through their children, as he was only concerned about the donations they received.

Sithole commented on the ongoing drama surrounding the birth of her ten children after Tsotetsi claimed he had not seen Sithole or their children since her story made headlines.

In the video posted by the Pretoria News Editor, Sithole refuted her boyfriend and his family's claims about the babies. She also constantly referred to them as her babies without confirming the number.

The alleged mother claimed Tsotetsi and his family wanted to make money through her and her babies' incredible story. They were only concerned about the donations people across the world had sent to support the family. She said:

"They were looking at the donations coming from people and wanting to be millionaires from the births. They were expecting to be rich."


Sithole explained that the family's greed was why she had kept the location of the babies a secret. Furthermore, she stated that she does not need to disclose their location to anyone because the children are hers.

The mother has kept their location a secret since the record-breaking birth and intends to continue to keep their location private.

In the meantime, the couple accepted donations from people worldwide who wanted to support them.


Tsotetsi and his family have publically questioned the existence of the children. The family said they did not believe the story and would not believe it until they saw evidence proving their existence.

Sithole addressed her boyfriend's family's comments and explained that they were unfair and a way for the family to hurt her. She said:

"What they are doing shows me that they wanted to ruin something with my babies. "


Sithole, Tsoteti, and the alleged decuplets made headlines after Tsoteti told South African news outlets that his girlfriend had birthed ten babies. The news was based on information Sithole told him.

News outlets were skeptical of the story. Eventually, the government was informed, and an investigation was conducted. The Gauteng Government later released a statement and said that none of the province's hospitals had records of the patient or the babies.


In the meantime, the couple accepted donations from people worldwide who wanted to support them. Tsoteti even flew to Cape Town to accept a £50,000 donation. However, he has now urged people to stop sending the mother money.

The decuplets' story made headlines a month after a Malian woman, Halima Cisse, 25, gave birth to nine babies via Caesarean section. Cissie's birth first broke the world record for most living babies at once.
