After raising 8 boys and 10 girls, Mrs. Sima Zalmanov gave birth to her 19th child last week.
Zalmanov, 47 and married for 27 years, gave birth in the Ziv hospital in the city of Tzfas.
“It came as a surprise,” she told Oshrat Nagar Loyt of the Israeli daily Yedioth Aharonot.
“We didn’t think that in my age I would have another child. But This is great happiness for me.”
Principal of the Chabad High School in Tzfas, Zalmanov remembers each of her children birthdays.
In addition to those dates, she’s got 7 grandchildren to keep track of. The family is now waiting for an 8th grandchild – expected next month.
