Pretoria News after the birth of the decuplets quoted Sithole's husband Teboho Tsotetsi
and said, " it is seven boys and three girls. She was seven months and seven days pregnant. I am happy. I am emotional."

The lady who hails from Gauteng said that her pregnancy was natural and she did not have to undergo any fertility treatments.

Sithole had told Pretoria News last month that she was shocked by her pregnancy. "I was convinced that if it was more, it would be twins or triplets, not more than that. When the doctor told me, I took time to believe it," she also said.

She said she had sleepless nights. How would they fit in the womb and would they survive. What if they come out conjoined in the head or hands or stomach? I asked myself all these questions until the doctor assured that me that my womb was starting to expand inside. God made a miracle and my children stayed in the womb without any complications, she also said.
