The story of a woman named Catherine Bridge, who is said to “hold the world record for the most children born at one time, 17 babies”, has caused a stir on social networks. since 2014 and the truth behind makes many people curious.

Babies kept coming and coming and coming and coming…” The tale of a woman named Catherine Bridge, who supposedly “holds the World Record for the most babies in a lone pregnancy by giving birth to 17 babies,” has been making the rounds of social media since 2014. Of course, this account did not originate with any real incident or news report, but with a January 20, 2014 article published by World News Daily Report (WNDR), a notorious purveyor of junk news:

“USA: MOTHER GIVES BIRTH TO 17 BABIES AT ONCE! An American woman has totally annihilated the former World Record for the most babies in a lone pregnancy by giving birth to seventeen babies over 29 hours last weekend at the Indianapolis Memorial Hospital. Catherine and her husband tried to have kids for years. Finally, they decided to use medical help from a fertility clinic. The insemination process was definitely successful, as the couple got an entire litter of seventeen beautiful and identical boys.”

The original WNDR article included only the photograph of 17 blue-clothed babies shown above; someone later embellished the social media version by adding a (manipulated) image of a pregnant woman and a picture of a man sitting on a sofa amidst a multitude of diaper-clad infants.

The record for most surviving children produced in a single pregnancy remains eight, a feat accomplished in 2009 by Nadya Suleman, more commonly known as “Octomom.” (A few instances of the live birth of nine children stemming from a single pregnancy have been recorded, but those children all died shortly afterwards.)
