A Ugandan woman has unofficially etched her name into the record books by giving birth 15 times to 44 children.
Even more intriguing is the fact that she says she will continue to give birth because childbearing is her special talent and gift from God.
What’s more, Mariam Nabatanzi whose nickname is Mother Uganda or Mother Africa is just 41 which means the possibility of procreating is still on course if she does not do anything medically to halt it.
She gave birth to her first child when she was only 13 years old after being sold to her parents to a 57-year-old man. “I gave birth 15 times. I gave birth to five quadruplets five times. For twins, it would have been six times, but a set died, so it is five times too,” she said.
She said if she meets a new suitor, she won’t rule out giving birth to more children. “If I had a chance to meet a good man, I would be glad to produce more babies because giving birth is not bad. Childbearing is a gift from God,” she stated.
Mariam said she had no idea what life had in store for her while growing up but one thing she knew for sure is that she would love to give birth to multiple kids. “I wanted to give birth to only seven children,” she noted.
She said she wanted five children and named them her deceased brothers’ names, one with her name and another with her husband’s. “God made it happen, and in just two times, I already had seven children,” Nabatanzi revealed.
She went to the doctors to shut her womb and even used contraception methods to prevent getting pregnant, but all was in vain. “So if I have an understanding man, I will have more children,” Mariam concluded.
