According to the Guinness Book of Records, doctors had anticipated Halima would give birth to seven children, but when she was taken to the Ain Borja Clinic in Morocco for specialized care, two additional infants were found.

The nonuplets were delivered prematurely through a caesarean section in the 30th week of Halima’s pregnancy.

The babies comprise five girls and four boys, and their names are Adama, Oumou, Hawa, Kadidia, Fatouma, Oumar, Elhadji, Bah, and Mohammed VI.

According to the father, caring for them was a lot of work, he said;


“They all have different characters. Some are quiet, while others make more noise and cry a lot. Some want to be picked up all the time. They are all very different, which is entirely normal. It’s a lot of work but Allah, who gave us this blessing, will help us in their upbringing and taking care of them.”

The parents already had a 3-year-old girl before the nonuplets were born.


According to the Guinness World Records, Halima Cissé’s nonuplets are the first known occurrence of a woman giving birth to nine children together.

The mother received assistance from the Malian government, which also mandated that she be flown to Morocco while pregnant.
