Today in this episode, let’s Meet The 33-Year-Old Mother of 12 Who Has Been Pregnant For Nearly 17 Years and the owner of the saying: I’m 33 with 12 kids and I’ve basically been pregnant for 17 years – people always assume I’m on benefits but I’m not.
Mom of 12 Britni Church could use a nap. Her first pregnancy was at age 16 and she is now 33, and has been pregnant for an average of 98 months total.
Between 2004 and 2022 that have only been three years in which she did not conceive and/or give birth, these being 2013, 2017 and 2022. Talking to Today Parent with a laugh, the busy pregnant mum of 12 says “I think I’m done”. However, she adds that her husband would gladly have more if she changed her mind. The Kansas-based couple share Silas, 7, Christopher Jr. 5, 3-year-old triplets Oliver, Asher and Abel, and Rowyn, 11 months.
Church is also mom of Crizman, 17, Jordan, 16, Caleb, 14, Jace, 13, Cadence, 12, and Jesalyn, 10, from previous relationships which lasted 6 years and 6 months. She shares on TikTok that this wasn’t a good relationship and that she feels very grateful that she and the kids were able to make it out. As a single mum-of-five at just 22, Britni says she fell pregnant and gave birth to her sixth child, while in another relationship, which ultimately did not work out. She then met her now-husband Chris when she was 25 and the couple have had six children since, taking the total up to 12.
Every month, it costs the family about $200 for milk alone.
They also add that there is constant noise and screaming with so many people in the house. However, Church the pregnant mom of 12 said. “But it’s just normal for us. I’m able to drown it out somehow.” Church also said people are fascinated by big families. She regularly shares stories on her TikTok account about her family, which was started in 2019 and has a total of over 1.8 million followers. Britni claims that the reason she has so many followers is in part because people can be somewhat obsessed with large families as they tend to be rather rare these days.
Church has made peace with the fact that she will always be behind on laundry and cleaning — she finds Goldfish crackers and noodles everywhere. What matters is that each kid feels special and loved. “We are happiest when we’re all together,” she said. “We’ve got a big waterslide and we’ve been having cookouts and sitting around the fire pit. Life is good.”
