There is a NOT TRUE story making the rounds on the internet about a woman in Detroit, Michigan that had her 14th child from 14 different fathers. NOT TRUE. The story comes from a known hoax site, Huzlers.com, but some people don't scroll all the way down the page to see the fine print.
The NOT TRUE story starts with "A 36-year old woman from Michigan has made a crashing entrance into the Guinness Book of World Records yesterday at the Harper University Hospital, by giving birth to her 14th child, all born from different fathers". NOT TRUE.
The NOT TRUE story goes on to say:
I'm extremely proud to have broken a World Record," Ms. Sullivan told reporters. "My mother always told me that I was lazy and worthless, and that I would never accomplish anything in my life. Now, I've shown everyone that she was wrong, and that I can even be the best in the world when I put my mind to something. In fact, I've just accomplished something that no one had done before!"
The NOT TRUE story also states:
I'm good at having babies, but I'm really awful when it comes to picking the fathers of my children," says the young woman. "This time, however, I think I've learned from my past mistakes. Ramón isn't like all the jerks I've dated before. We've been together for almost a year and a half, and I really believe it could work between us."
The image attached to the story of the couple with a newborn baby actually comes from a TRUE story from 2015, with the header "First Baby of the Year born Friday at Milford Hospital....It's a Boy!". New parents Karena Bennett and Elder Marroquin cradle their newborn, a perfectly normal couple enjoying the beauty of childbirth inadvertently involved in a NOT TRUE story.
As for the image of the children used in the NOT TRUE article, it comes from this blog in 2013, titled "Prop-a-palooza: The Use And Abuse Of Kiddie Human Shields".
