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.

She said: โ€œI feel very happy โ€ฆ Itโ€™s a beautiful gift.โ€

Her husband, Abdelkader Arby, shares that sentiment, calling the four boys and five girls a โ€œgift from God.โ€

Multiple births are rare โ€” in the US, 87.7 per 100,000 live births were of triplets or more, according to 2019 data from the CDC.

A woman who had eight babies in the US in 2009 holds the Guinness World Record for the most children delivered at a single birth to survive.

Two sets of nonuplets have previously been recorded โ€“ one born to a woman in Australia in 1971 and another to a woman in Malaysia in 1999 โ€“ but none of the babies survived more than a few days.

Cisse breaks the record for most babies delivered after a natural conception.
