In a staggering story out of Mexico, a woman has claimed to be carrying 9 babies–due just next month–and was busted shortly after for lying about it by the news outlets she was interviewed by.
Karla Vanessa Perez, of Coahuila, Mexico, reportedly said she was already the mother of triplets–which is also not true–and had a fertility treatment in order to acquire another multiple-embryo pregnancy. She even went to the lengths of making up how many of each sex she was carrying: six girls and three boys. In fact, Perez isn’t currently pregnant at all, seeing as how she had a tubal ligation after her youngest child was born. Her children are 15, 12, and 4 years old.
Seems to me that with all the media buzz surrounding “Octomom” Nadya Suleman recently, Perez was looking for some attention. Suleman made history in 2009 when she delivered 8 healthy babies, the biggest delivery on record.
José Salvador Gallegos Mata of the gynaecology society said it’s likely that Perez has emotional problems that need to be dealt with.
“That woman needs urgent psychological treatment,” he said.
