Mom, 33, With 12 Kids Has Been Pregnant On And Off For 17 Years


Mom, 33, With 12 Kids Has Been Pregnant On And Off For 17 Years

Her oldest had just graduated and her youngest arrived just last year.

Britni Church was 16 years old when she welcomed her first child, her daughter Crizman, in 2004. She’s 33 years old now and welcomed her youngest just last year at the age of 32.

She is now raising 12 children with Chris, 30, and thinks that she’s now satisfied with her big family.

Church appeared on Today Show and spoke about her future plan. She said, “I think I’m done.”

She was pregnant at the age of 15 and gave birth six days after turning 16. She welcomed three more children at the age of 17 to 19 and then four more throughout her 20s.

Church and her current husband share five children: Silas, 7, Christopher Jr., 5, 3-year-old triplets Oliver, Asher, and Abel, and Rowyn, 11-month-old.

Six of her children were from her previous relationships, and they were Crizman, 17, Jordan, 16, Caleb, 14, Jace, 13, Cadence, 12, and Jesalyn, 10. She was rising five of her children as a single mom for three years before she met her current husband Chris in 2014.

Crizman, her oldest, graduated high school last month and has a larger age gap with her mom than her youngest sibling.

She has seven boys and five girls in total and spent 98 months or 11 years total being pregnant. While she thinks she’s done, though, her husband Chris wants more! She added, “They were all vaginal except the triplets — with them, I had a C-section.”

She’s not planning, but she knew carrying her 13th child wouldn’t be that hard.

Aside from parenting, Church enjoys sharing about her family on social media. She documents her big family journey and shares clips with her 1.8 million followers. Chris answers questions such as what kind of car they ride and how they manage their grocery shopping.

She shared that they have a custom-made table with 12 seats built by Chris, and the house they live in has seven rooms. The family has a 15-seat Ford Transit when the family wants to travel together and a smaller Honda Pilot SUV.

The family goes through two gallons of milk a day, roughly $200 a month.

Thousands love her content of her children having fun and the family being huge that it’s almost always a party with them. But they’re not immune to negativity from people who shame them for having “too many” children. They blamed her for contributing to overpopulation and being on welfare.

But she’s learned to let them in one ear and out the other, “I used to care so much about what others thought of me. Don’t let them mean comments get to you. Be someone who spreads positivity!”

And she’s not on welfare as she spoke on Today, “A lot of people assume we’re on welfare — we’re not.”

“I get a lot of questions like, ‘Are you Catholic? Are you religious?’ I’m Pentecostal, but that has nothing to do why I have so many,” she added.

Regardless of what people say, she was happy, and that was all that mattered, “We are happiest when we’re all together.”
