A Mexican woman named Karla Vanessa Perez is pregnant with nine babies - six girls and three boys - the country's main broadcaster Televisa reported on Thursday night, and is now being dubbed as NonoMom or NueveMom.
But when reporters from the Mexican newspaper investigated, they learned she’s actually not pregnant at all. Her mother, Francisca Castañeda, told El Diario de Coahuila that Perez has three children, ages 15, 12 and 4 and after the last was born, had an operation to prevent her from getting pregnant again.
She 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.
José Salvador Gallegos Mata, a member of the Mexican Society of Gynecology and Urology told the newspaper that someone who would make such false claims “needs to urgently say ‘I’m here. Please look at me, I exist.'” He added, “That woman needs urgent psychological treatment.”
