A Russian woman who already has 22 children isn't planning on slowing down anytime soon, as she wants to have more than 80 more little ones.

Kristina Ozturk, who now lives in Georgia, and her millionaire hubby Galip are the parents to 22 kids, with the former welcoming her first child when she was 17.

Out of all of the babies Kristina has had, 21 were born via surrogates, a move the mum put down to wanting as many children as quickly as possible.

In February 2021, Kristina told MailOnline that she wants to have as many as ‘105’ children and shared an insight into what it's like raising so many tots all at once.

“I’m with the kids all the time, doing all the things that mums normally do,” she explained.

Kristina also said she runs a tight ship when it comes to childcare, and all of her babies sleep from ‘8pm to 6am’ each night.

What’s more, every detail of her children’s lives are recorded in diaries by the family’s nannies.

Kristina told the outlet: “I gave birth to my eldest daughter Vika myself six years ago. The rest of the children are genetically ours from my husband and I, but were carried by surrogates.”

Galip also took part in the interview, saying of his partner: “She is so easy to be with, she always has a smile on her lips and yet at the same time is shy and mysterious.

“She was the kind of wife I always wanted for myself, an uncut diamond where I saw what a pure and kind heart she had.”

Initially, the couple wanted to have a baby every year, but Kristina soon realised her body wouldn’t be able to keep up with such high demand.

So they turned to surrogacy, spending almost $10,000 on surrogacy costs per baby.

Of the surrogacy process, Kristina said: “The clinic in Batumi chooses surrogate mothers for us and takes full responsibility for the process.

“We are not personally acquainted with surrogate mothers and do not have direct contacts with them in order to avoid problems after pregnancy.”

As of 2023, Kristina has 22 children per her Instagram bio and shows no signs of stopping.
