JOHANNESBURG - The story of the Tembisa babies is evolving.

In a statement, the family of 10 newborns says they are doing well and are still in hospital, along with their mum.

Gosiame Sithole reportedly gave birth to decuplets - seven boys and three girls at a Pretoria hospital on Monday.

The birth would break the Guinness World Record, which was previously nine children.

Now the Gauteng government says it cannot track down the decuplets.

In a statement earlier, it says none of the province's public and private hospitals has a record of that delivery.

The family however says they are trying to come to terms with the little blessings and are welcoming beautiful ideas, including name suggestions.
