‘I’m a mom-of-12 and I’ve been pregnant for 88 months – I’m only 32’

Having children seems to be the most terrifying thing for some women. It might be a biological thing to fall pregnant, and our bodies literally crave having children even though we do not realize it at times. Taking this into consideration, there are some women who find it ridiculously difficult to fall pregnant, and others who seem to simply look at their husband and they manage to conceive. Our story today is of one mother who has been pregnant for 88 months, and she is only 32 years old!

12 Children at 32

Could you imagine what it must be like to essentially be pregnant for 88 months? One woman definitely has one or two things to share about her many pregnancies, resulting in 12 children by the age of 32. This mother in question is known as Britni Church from Arkansas. She was married to a man that she assumed would be her forever husband, and by the age of 16, she had her first child, a boy named Crizman, who is now 16 years old himself.

Britni and her husband were very close at that stage, and they ended up having another four children together.  Cadence was 10 years old, Jace is 12, Caleb is 13, and Jordan is 14 years old. They lived a happy life until things started falling apart for the coupe and they ended up breaking up in the year 2010. As many people do she went through a bit of a wild card phase, and she ended up falling pregnant with another man. They were never married, however, and since then she met her second husband, with whom she had another 6 six children, and she is now sitting raising 12 children today.

Large Family Means High Expenses

Most families find groceries a high expense. That is not where the cost of children end, there are still the clothes that they are forever growing out of, the school books, the stationary, the sun lotion the toothbrush and toothpaste, and then the dreaded diapers. On average, most children go through about six to 10 diapers per day, so when Britni had her triplets with her second husband, Chris, the cost of diapers must have been through the roof!

Reportedly they spend about £230 on groceries. That price will obviously fluctuate, but they are generally burning through bread and cereal at a rate that might seem alarming to the average family with two children. They were going through bout 600 diapers each week, which is a dire amount, but one that is unavoidable because not everyone has the ability to deal with cloth diapers that they must stick in the wash. Not only that, but they are also drinking up to 66 cartons of milk and five boxes of cereal in the same week. So each errand’s day they must be doing a massive shop that most people would assume would last them a month.

Britni shared Her Mother’s Struggles

Being a mother of five children is not the easiest thing in the world. Britni took to social media to start sharing the day-to-day life that she experienced raising half a dozen children. She made a TikTok account with the username OurLargeFamilyLife, and she makes some clever videos where she films herself doing things for her children. One of the videos is a clip where she is making the kid’s lunches for school. This might not seem like a great feat for some women, but when you have 12 hungry children, it is. She has it on a time-lapse so that it goes a lot faster, and it still manages to get through the first verse of the soundtrack to the clip. 

She faces a lot of scrutiny from other people who do not understand why she wanted so many children. In an interview, she said, “People assume a lot of things about us that just isn’t true – we are just like everyone else.” The sad thing is that everyone will still have their opinion, so it is remarkable to see her confidence in raising her children despite that external judgment.
