The record for the most surviving children delivered at one time is held by Nadya Suleman, a U.S. citizen who gave birth to eight babies (two girls and six boys) at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in California on January 26, 2009. The children were conceived using IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) treatment.
All eight babies were born nine weeks premature. Nadya Suleman is the only child of Assyrian-Iraqi-American Edward Doud Suleman and Angela Victoria. Prior to the birth of Suleman's octuplets, only one other set of octuplets had been born alive in the United States. Nadya has a total of 14 kids.
