"... Jubilees 4:10 ... Eve subsequently gave birth to nine more children: This is not mentioned in Genesis, but Adam and Eve’s additional children do figure elsewhere in Second Temple writings: according to Pseudo-Philo’s Biblical Antiquities 1:2, they had “twelve sons and eight daughters” after the birth of Seth ..."
