Mum-of-11 wants more kids even though she’s spent a decade of her life pregnant

A mum-of-11 has opened up about wanting to have more children.

Britni Church, 31, had her first child Crizman just a few days after her 16th birthday.

Now since then, the parent from Kansas, US, has welcomed 10 more kids.

There's Jordan, 14; Caleb, 13; Jace, 12; Candence, 10; Jesalyn, eight; Silas, five; Christopher, three and one-year-old triplets Oliver, Asher and Abel.

However, despite the extra large bills which comes with a large family, Britni admits she wants to add to her brood.

And the mum, who is married to her husband Chris, would want as many as 15 children in total.

To care for her massive brood, Britni and her second husband Chris, 28, spend around £230 per week on their food shopping.

That includes five boxes of cereal, 66 cartons of milk and around 600 diapers.

She said: "I hope we'll try to have another girl still.

"I don't think I would ever have more than 15 kids but then again I never thought I'd have 11 kids.

"I thought I would have many four kids maximum. It does not feel like I have loads of kids – it feels normal."

The mum had her first child Crizman just six days after her sweet 16 with her ex-husband back in 2004.

Five days before, the couple tied the knot, then had four more children together, Jordan, Caleb, Jace and Cadence.

But when the pair broke-up in 2010, Britni went through a carefree phase.

She partied at weekends then unexpectedly fell pregnant with her sixth child Jesalyn in 2012.

Britni spent three years raising her children alone as a single parent before meeting sub-contractor Chris at work in 2014.

The couple had their first son together, Silas, in summer 2015 – a year after meeting.

Then she had Christopher a year after and surprise triplets, Oliver, Asher and Abel, in June 2019.

Britni said: "I felt lots of shame about getting pregnant the sixth time because I always wanted my children to have the same dad.

"But when Jesalyn was born she was so innocent, precious and beautiful. All of the shame went away immediately.

"She was perfect. I stopped caring what people thought. I love having a big family – there's always someone to talk to."

Britni starts her day at 7 in the morning, where she checks up on the triplets and prepares breakfast for the kids.

Then she begins the twelve loads of washing she has to do per week, while Chris starts the two school runs.

After lunch, with the older kids at school, Britni reads books to send the triplets to sleep and catches up on her own personal hobbies.

She then prepares dinner and cleans up with the help of Chris, before completing any homework and sneaking in an hour of TV.

The family eat meals together on a custom-made 12-seater table that Chris built.

Each child shares a room in the five-bedroom house which Britni and Chris hope to convert the attic and basement into extra space.

Britni shares the family's adventure on Instagram which has over 7,000 followers.

She added: "We get lots of stares when we go out as a family.

"We've had people buy the whole family dinner on multiple occasions because they're so impressed how well behaved the kids are.

"If things go well, we hope to build a house in the country by a large pond as Chris loves fishing."
