23-year-old woman with 11 biological children says she wants more kids
A young mum who already has 11 babies hopes to have dozens more using surrogate mothers.
Christina Ozturk, 23, lives with her millionaire hotel owner husband Galip Ozturk in the coastal town of Batumi in the former Soviet republic of Georgia where the practice is legal.
And after 10 babies, including one that the mum gave birth to naturally, the couple have got the process down to a fine art.
They mentioned on social media they wanted at least 105 but later admitted that number was a joke.
All of the potential candidates go through counselling and sign legal paperwork before becoming pregnant with children that are genetically from Christina and her husband.
“The clinic in Batumi chooses surrogate mothers for us and takes full responsibility for the process,” explained Christina.
“We are not personally acquainted with surrogate mothers and do not have direct contacts with them in order to avoid problems after pregnancy.”
But Christina likes to have control over what they eat – coming up with diet and nutrition plans for the pregnant surrogates.
With money no object, the couple can live out their dream of creating the world’s largest family – although even having five babies through surrogate each year would take almost 20 years to reach their goal.
With ambitious plans for more babies on the way, the Ozturks might also need to start building an extension or two.
