Move Over Octomom, One Mexican Mommy Is Pregnant With 9 Babies

By  | 

woman pregnant with 9 babiesWho knows if Karla Vanessa Perez, currently eight months pregnant, will be offered a reality show for her soon-to-be increasing brood but perhaps some network executive should get on it. The mother is set to deliver her nine babies (three boys and six girls) on May 20th. She’ll be bringing her newborns home to meet her infant triplets and 4-year-old daughter, which before you bother counting, equals 13 children under the age of five. Let’s hope they like TV!

Karla currently resides in Coahuila, which just touches Texas. Her pregnancy did result from fertility treatments, much like how “Octomom” Nadya Suleman‘s doctor implanted 12 embryos expecting only one or a few to take. His license was revoked for such a practice and some experts now suggest using “single-embryo transfers,” especially since doing so does not hinder chances for pregnancy.

Should all hopefully go well on delivery day for Karla, her babies will officially be one of the world’s highest number of births as nonuplets. TLC probably already has the offer contracts ready.

UPDATE: Reuters is now reporting that this story is false. They say that Karla Perez is not pregnant at all.
