A South African woman has reportedly given birth to 10 babies at once — smashing a world record set just last month.

Gosiame Thamara Sithole, already a 37-year-old mom of six-year-old twins, initially thought she was going to have eight kids, becoming a rare “Octomom” like Californian Nadya Suleman, according to a report Tuesday.

But when she gave birth by Caesarean section at a Pretoria hospital Monday she was surprised when 10 babies emerged, her husband, Teboho Tsotetsi, told the Pretoria News.

When seeing each other for the first time in almost 70 years, George Skrzynecky and Lucian Poznanski couldn't stop the tears from flowing.

The twin brothers, who are now both 69 years old, were born in Germany in 1946 after their Polish mother, Elizabeth, was freed from a forced labor camp at the end of World War II, according to the BBC. She was too ill to care for them so they were sent to Poland, where they were adopted separately.

Since the 1980s, the global twinning rate has increased by a third, from 9.1 to 12.0 twin deliveries per 1000 deliveries, to about 1.6 million twin pairs each year.

It was already known that in the 1980s natural twinning rates were low in (East) Asia and South America, at an intermediate level in Europe and North America, and high in many African countries. It was also known that in recent decades, twinning rates have been increasing in the wealthier parts of our world as a result of the rise in medically assisted reproduction (MAR) and delayed childbearing.

So far, thousands of identical and fraternal twins, same and gender different have joined the Hungarian Twin Registry established at Semmelweis University, which aims to contact all twins in Hungary. With the establishment of the population-based Hungarian twin registry, it will be possible to explore new observations and connections in many fields of science, which can contribute to the preservation of health, the prevention of diseases and the development of more effective treatments.
