A mother of eleven who has spent almost ten years pregnant says she is desperate for more children, despite spending 600 nappies a week.

Britni Church, 31, had her first child at 16 and she has since welcomed ten others, including year-old triplets Oliver, Asher and Abel.

The family lives in a five-bedroom house in Kansas.

The full-time mother and her husband Chris, 28, spend about $300 a week on groceries, consuming five boxes of cereal, 66 cartons of milk and 600 diapers.

But despite the financial strain of having a large family, Britney admits that she wants at least four more children, but only if her other children are open to the idea.

“I hope we try to have another girl yet. I don’t think she would ever have more than 15 children, but I never thought she would have 11 children,” she said.

“I thought she would have maybe four kids tops.”

The melancholic mother came to love the constant companionship that a large family provided.

“She doesn’t feel like she has many children, she feels normal,” she said.

“If any of the kids said, ‘you can’t have any more,’ I would accept that it’s too much.”

The devoted Arkansas City, Kansas, mother gave birth to her first child, 15-year-old Crizman, six days after her sixteenth birthday with her ex-husband.

The couple had married five days earlier and had four other children together: Jordan, 14, Caleb, 13, Jace, 12, and Cadence, 10.

When the couple split in 2010, Britni went through a carefree phase, partying on weekends and unexpectedly becoming pregnant with her sixth child, Jesalyn, now eight, in 2012.

She spent three years raising her children on her own as a single parent before meeting her current husband, Chris, a subcontractor, in 2014.

It wasn’t long before the couple had their first child together, five-year-old Silas, in the summer of 2015, a year after they met, and she gave birth to another son, 3-year-old Christopher, in 2016 and surprise triplets Oliver, Asher and Abel, 1 year old. in June of last year.


“I was very ashamed to get pregnant for the sixth time because I always wanted my children to have the same dad,” Britni said.

“But when Jesalyn was born, she was so innocent and precious and beautiful. All the embarrassment left immediately.

“She was perfect. She stopped caring what people thought.

“I love having a big family, there is always someone to talk to.”
