Breaking News: An Indian Woman gave birth to 11 kids baby boys..

Fact Check:

The photograph doing rounds on social media platforms Facebook shows 11 new born babies along with hospital staff. Accompanying messages claim an Indian woman gave birth to all of them in a single delivery – considering it a miracle of god. Interestingly, they say 6 out of the 11 babies were twins. Although the photograph is genuine, accompanying stories are not true.

Origin of Story: Woman Gives Birth to 11 Kids

The story in question first appeared in February 2012 in an article published on Tumfweko website tumfweko.com. The website, however, shares gossip around the world.

The photograph actually shows 11 kids born to different mothers on 11.11.11 at 21st Century Hospital & Test Tube Baby Centre in Surat, India. The doctors and hospital staff together with the new born babies took photographs and shared it as an interesting achievement on 11.11.11. You can see other pictures of the kids and staff below.

Multiple birth is a rare phenomenon, and whenever it happens, it is very unlikely that the kids will survive. If something like that happened, it would definitely appear on news outlets. There are couple of such instances of Nonuplets (9 kids born at a time), but no records of any 11 kids born at a time. So, the story claiming Indian woman giving birth to 11 kids all at once is a hoax, mostly a prank to mislead people.

Update: 20th November 2019

There’s another version of the story doing rounds on social media platforms claiming to show – a woman gave birth to 11 babies – 1 boy and 10 girls.

The pictures are unrelated. The woman lying on hospital bed is a Mexican woman Mercedes Talamante with a 132lb Ovarian tumour. Surgeons spent four hours operating on the tumour and removed it successfully back in 2014.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
