A Pakistani family entered the archives of history when they broke a Guinness world record in the category of “most family members born on the same day.” All nine members of the family have the same birth date of August 1, making them eligible for the title.
This remarkable accomplishment was accomplished by Amir Azad Mangi and his family from Larkana, Pakistan. They succeeded in breaking the record that had been held by an American family of five members since 1966 when the Guinness book of world records was first published.
The family that now holds the record is made up of Amir Azad Mangi, his wife Khadija, and all seven of their children, which includes two pairs of twins.
Mr. Mangi was born on August 1st, 1968, his wife was born on August 1st, 1973, their first daughter Sindhu was born on August 1st, 1992, their twin daughters Sassi and Sapna were born on August 1st, 1998, their first son Amir was born on August 1st, 2001, their second son Ambar was born on August 1st, 2002, and their twin sons Amar and Ahmer were born on August 1st, 2003.
It took the family three years before they were eventually acknowledged and removed from their position as American citizens Carolyn and Ralph Cummins.
In December 2020, the family was informed by the Guinness Book of World Records that their verification had been finished. This Pakistani family broke a Guinness record and is now added to the list of world records.
