The world’s only nonuplets are celebrating their first birthday in great health.

The world’s first nonuplets, a group of nine babies born at the same time, have turned one.

On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, Halima Cissé, a 26-year-old Mali woman, gave birth to five girls and four boys in Morocco.

Their father, Abdelkader Arby, a Malian army officer, told the BBC that the nonuplets are in wonderful health.

“Now they’re all crawling.” Some people can sit up and walk if they hang on to something. “They are still under the care of the clinic where they were born in Morocco,” he said, adding that their mother, Halima, was doing well.

“It isn’t easy, but it is fantastic.” Even if it’s exhausting at times, we’re relieved when we see all the healthy infants from right to left. He told BBC Afrique, “We forget everything.”

He and their three-year-old daughter, Souda, have recently returned to Morocco for the first time in six months.

“I’m overjoyed to be reunited with my entire family, including my wife, children, and myself.”

Mr Arby stated that they will only have a tiny birthday celebration with the nurses and a few neighbors from their apartment complex.

“Nothing compares to the first year.” We’ll never forget this incredible event.”

The babies set a new Guinness World Record for the most children born alive in one birth.

Multiple births are dangerous, and in countries where abortion is permitted, moms carrying more than four foetuses are recommended to eliminate some of them.

There’s also a chance that the newborns will suffer health issues as a result of their early birth, such as sepsis and cerebral palsy.

Mrs Cissé and the children are currently residing in a “medicalized flat” owned by the owners of the Ain Borja clinic in Casablanca, where the infants were born, according to their father.

“In addition to my wife, there are nurses here who assist in the care of the children,” Mr Arby explained.

“The clinic has given them a menu that tells them what to feed them at all times of the day and night,” he continued.

According to Mali’s health minister, Fanta Siby, the kids were born by Caesarean surgery at 30 weeks. At the moment of birth, they weighed between 500g and 1kg (1.1lb and 2.2lb), according to Professor Youssef Alaoui, medical director of the Ain Borja clinic.

Mohammed VI, Oumar, Elhadji, and Bah are the names of their boys, while Kadidia, Fatouma, Hawa, Adama, and Oumou are the names of their females.

According to their father, each of them has a distinct personality.

“Each of them has an own personality. Some people are quiet, while others are loud and cry a lot. Some people prefer to be picked up all of the time. They’re all quite distinct, which is to be expected.”

Mr. Arby also expressed gratitude to the Malian government for their assistance.

“The Malian government has put in place all of the necessary arrangements for the care and treatment of the nine babies and their mother. “It’s not easy, but it’s lovely and reassuring,” he remarked.

They have not yet visited Mali, but their father claims that they are already well-known there.

“Everyone – their family, friends, our home village, the entire country – is eager to meet the newborns with their own eyes.”

“I pray God blesses everyone who doesn’t yet have children – so they can have what we, the parents of nonuplets, currently enjoy,” he says to couples attempting to conceive. It’s lovely, and it’s a true find.
