Mom who gave birth to 9 thriving babies says ‘I feel very happy … It’s a beautiful gift’

Halima Cissé, a woman from Mali, and her husband, Abdelkader Arby, Cissé greeted their nine babies, five girls and four boys.

The nine babies were born on May 4, 2021 and have now achieved the Guinness World Records title for most children delivered in a single birth to survive.

The babies were born in the 30th week of pregnancy, and although they are still under hospital observation, their father says they are in excellent health. Each of them weighed between 500 g and 1 kg.

Halima Cissé lives in Mali. After a visit to her OB-GYN, she was told she was seven years pregnant and flew to Morocco for a medical procedure.

Halima Cissé was expecting seven newborns, but two more were detected after she was admitted to the Ain Borja Clinic for specialized care.

The smallest child weighed just over a pound, and Cissé underwent emergency surgery for internal bleeding.

Three months later, the unborn are all alive and thriving, being treated in a neonatal unit at the Moroccan hospital.

The five girls (Adama, Oumou, Hawa, Kadidia, Fatouma) and the four boys (Oumar, Elhadji, Bah and Mohammed VI) are feeling well and developing and becoming stronger day by day.

The carrier husband Abdelkader, a Malian Navy sailor, remained in Mali during the birth to care for the couple’s three-year-old daughter, Souda.

In October 2021, he was able to reunite with his family and release the first pictures of the healthy babies.

“They are all doing very well and are a joy to care for,” Abdelkader said at the time.

The non-children in Mali celebrated their first birthday today, May 4, 2022.

To say Halima Cisse has her hands full is a bit of an understatement. The family said they go through 100 diapers and six liters of milk in a day. And the couple already has a daughter.

“I feel very happy … It’s a nice gift,” she told ABC News.

Her husband, Abdelkader Arby, shares that sentiment, calling the four boys and five girls a “gift from God.”,
