A mum who claims to have had decuplets has hit back at claims from the 'dad' that they don't exist saying he's trying to become a 'millionaire'.

Gosiame Sithole also said she is hurt by suggestions by her lover Teboho Tsotetsi that there are no 10 babies.

The couple became worldwide news after Gosiame announced she had given birth to the record-breaking number of babies in South Africa.

The 37-year-old claimed the seven boys and three girls, who were conceived naturally, were delivered through C-section and at 29 weeks at a hospital in the city of Pretoria on June 7.

So far a photo of the decuplets has yet to be released and the story has taken several twists and turns.

Gosiame claims Teboho was 'expecting to be rich' from the babies and was only concerned about the donations that have been flooding in from well-wishers around the world.

The 'new mum' said she has now gone into hiding with her babies and she will continue to keep their whereabouts a secret.

She added that 'no-one can force her to' disclose where they are.

Gosiame has spoken out after Teboho said on Tuesday he had not seen her or the alleged children since her incredible claims.

Speculation has grown over Gosiame's claims after the hospital where she said she gave birth denied treating her.

His family released a statement which said they do not believe there are decuplets until it is proven otherwise.

Speculation has grown over Ms Sithole's claims after the hospital where she is claimed to have given birth denied treating her.

Gosiame refuted Teboho's claims and referred to the repeatedly as 'my babies' in videos shared by Pretoria News editor Piet Rampedi on Tuesday.

She didn't confirm how many babies there are or their names, TimesLive reports.

She said: "They are unfair because they are doing things and they are trying to hurt me.

"I speak to Tsotetsi now and then. I feel that they never loved me; I was just forced to be with him."

Addressing Teboho's family's statement, she said: "What they are doing shows me that they wanted to ruin something with my babies.

"That is why they are crying so much for them. The children are mine and no-one else's. Why are they after me?

"They were looking at the donations coming from people and wanting to be millionaires from the births. They were expecting to be rich. That is why I have [my babies] where they are."

She also questioned claims that the decuplets do not exist.

"Are they sure with what they are saying? I want to know if they are sure of what they are saying. I will do what I want, and on my own time and not on their time," she insisted.

"I won't do it for them, I will do it for my sake because they never loved me".

The statement from Teboho's family read: "Teboho confirmed he had not seen the deculplets and relied on his girlfriend who called to inform him of their birth.

"He made several attempts to visit his girlfriend and the babies but she has failed to disclose her whereabouts and the condition of her babies.

"The current uncertainties and public disclosure about the decuplets is of major concern to the family, especially in the absence of any proof of the decuplets' existence other than telephonic and WhatsApp messages from the mother."

The family added until 'it is proven otherwise' they believe the babies do not exist.

Teboho has also pleaded with the public to stop sending money to Gosiame.

Gosiame, who has twin daughters, said doctors first told her she was expecting six babies before a second scan showed there were eight babies.

But her 10 babies claim has not been confirmed by doctors or the Guinness World Records.

The current record holder is Halima Cisse from Mali who had nine babies in May.

Last week Sibongile Gxekwa claimed Teboho is her husband and he cheated on her with Gosiame before moving his lover into his mum's home.

Sibongile said she eventually found out her husband had impregnated his lover and that she was expecting eight children.
