The woman hopes to have over a 100 more through surrogacy with her 56-year-old husband.
A Russian woman welcomed ten babies by surrogacy in 10 months and wants to have many more. Christina Ozturk gave birth naturally to her firstborn daughter Vika when she was just 17 years old. Now 24, the mommy of many plans on having more children with her wealthy hotel owner husband Galip Ozturk, 56. The two met while holidaying in the coastal town of Batumi in Georgia, reports The Daily Mail. Through surrogacy, they welcomed their first child Mustafa on 10th March 2020 and their 10th child was born on 16th January 2021.
The couple currently lives in Batumi, where they have 16 live-in nannies who help them take care of their large brood. They plan on having as many children as quickly as possible with the help of surrogacy. On their Instagram page, they claim to have 22 kids so far. In fact, the couple isn't planning to stop there and has discussed having over 100 children! Speaking to Fabulous, as per The Sun, the young woman said, "I've dreamed about this since childhood. My husband also dreamed about having a big, happy family. So after we met, we started to put our dream into action. Our romantic relationship has changed but then our whole lives have changed, not just the romantic part. I'm not sure if we will be the biggest family in the world, but we are planning to be the happiest family in the world for sure."
The young mom added, "Our surrogacy clinic is amazed but happy to help us with our dream of a big family." She also mentioned that she isn't ruling out having more kids naturally, explaining "I’m planning my pregnancy, but not straight away because for now, I need to be close with my babies. I’m with the kids all the time, doing all the things that mums normally do. The only difference is the number of kids. Each day is different, from planning staff schedules to shopping for my family. I can tell you one thing, my days are never boring."
In today's world, having one kid can be pretty expensive, but what are the costs of having nearly a dozen?" It costs about $5,000 to$6,000 per week for essentials for all the kids. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a bit less. The kids each have their own wardrobes, but sometimes they share clothes for photos."
The big family consists of Mustafa, 14 months; Mariam, 13 months; Ayrin, 13 months; Alisa, 13 months; Hasan, one; Judi, one; Harper, 11 months; Teresa, 11 months; Huseyin, 11 months; Anna, 10 months; Isabella, 10 months; Ismail, nine months; Mehmet, nine months; Ahmet, nine months; Ali, eight months; Kristina, eight months; Sara, seven months; Lokman, seven months; Galip, six months; and Olivia, four months. Phew!
For those who are calling the mom out as being addicted to having babies and questioning her decisions, she has this to say. "To people who disagree with my choices, I say don’t have so many kids if you don’t want them, that’s your choice. Don’t use surrogacy if you don’t want it, that’s your choice. But this is our life, and it's our choice."
