Mum Of 12 Who Has Been Pregnant On And Off For 17 Years Says Husband Still Wants More Kids

Mum Of 12 Who Has Been Pregnant On And Off For 17 Years Says Husband Still Wants More Kids

If you're wondering where all the loo roll went during lockdown, look no further because in a real-life Cheaper By The Dozen story, Britni Church has opened up about having 12 kids.

Yep, 12 - enough to fill two full five aside teams, complete with a ref and a substitute player.

Understandably, Britni says she's just about 'done' with having kids, but incredibly, her husband, Chris, isn't against having more.

It's safe to say people are fascinated by the big family, so much so that Britni has amassed 1.8 million followers on her TikTok account Our Large Family Life.

The account shares snippets of the family's life, featuring Britni's five girls and seven boys, three of whom are triplets.

So, as you can imagine, their house is pretty noisy, with Britni telling the Today Show: "There’s always noise. Someone is always screaming."

Although, luckily for the family, the noise is 'just normal for us. I’m able to drown it out somehow.'

Despite the noise, Britni wouldn't change her life for the world, adding: "We are happiest when we’re all together."

And there's plenty to keep them occupied, including 'a big waterslide' as well as 'cookouts and sitting around the fire pit.' Sounds like the dream, to be fair.

Still, that doesn't stop people from asking pretty intrusive questions about the family. "A lot of people assume we’re on welfare — we’re not," she explained.

"I get a lot of questions like, ‘Are you Catholic? Are you religious?’ I’m Pentecostal [a denomination of Christianity], but that has nothing to do why I have so many."

They weren't even the most invasive, though, with some people asking how she delivered all 12 kids.

But Britni is happy to answer, explaining: "They were all vaginal except the triplets — with them I had a C-section."

To be honest, the only question we had was what car the family drive, but Britni answered that too, saying they easily get around with a 15-seater Ford Transit, and we imagine car games are pretty incredible.

With a pretty much full car, it's understandable that the devoted mum feels just about 'done' with having kids.

Still, her husband seems pretty open to more kids, with Britni addressing the topic in a recent video by responding to the question "I KNOW your husband doesn't want more babies?".

"Why wouldn't he?", she says before following up in the caption by saying that Chris actually would want more.
