London, Apr 28: A Mexican woman is reportedly pregnant with nine babies, less than a year after giving birth to triplets.
The country’s main broadcaster Televisa reported on Thursday night that Karla Vanessa Perez is expecting six girls and three boys.
Perez, who already has triplets, was described as coming from the northeastern state of Coahuila, which borders the U.S. state of Texas, the Daily Mail reported.
She is presently being treated at a hospital in the state capital Saltillo, according to the reports.
Perez, whose age was not mentioned, had fertility treatment with her husband Bernardo leading to the multiple pregnancy, it said.
A state-owned news agency also reported the pregnancy, insisting that Perez was due to give birth on May 20.
“It’s very early to think of names for the babies,” Perez said.
“First I hope that everything goes well,” she added.
The successful delivery of nonuplets would be one of the highest multiple births ever recorded. (ANI)
