Russian woman, 24, who welcomed TWENTY ONE surrogate babies in just over a year with millionaire husband, 57, insists she’s still a ‘hands-on mum’ despite spending $100,000 on 16 nannies
Russian Kristina Ozturk, The Woman Who Amazed The World, 24 who is originally from Moscow became famous all over the world after learning that she is the mother of 21 children, born of surrogate mothers, in a period of one year. Kristina says she doesn’t want to stop here, intending to have 105 biological children. She met her husband, Galip Ozturk, 57, while holidaying in the coastal town of Batumi in Georgia, and from there their relationship blossomed into a large family.
The parent opted to use surrogate mothers because they wanted to have as many children as quickly possible. Their first child Mustafa was born on March 10 2020. Their most recent addition, and 21st child together Judy, is just three months old.
The couple have so far paid €168,000 (£142,000) to surrogates between March 2020 and July this year. They also spend $96,000 (£67,700) a year on 16 live-in nannies. It costs the couple 4,000 euros a month for baby essentials, buying 20 boxes of diapers and 53 boxes of powdered milk.
She shares snippets of her hectic life on her Instagram account, where she has hundreds of thousands of followers.
The Woman Who Amazed The World reveals how the 21 babies walk in double strollers and how the nannies have bedrooms next to the children’s rooms. Each room has its own kitchen. The nannies are working 4 days with 2 days off. The nannies do not take care of certain children during their activity. They are given a certain child in the care at the beginning of the day.
Each task cost around 10,000 euros
The couple say that it was love at first sight and they both want to have children as soon as possible. Hence, they turned to surrogate mothers. The original plan was for the two to have one baby each year. However, medically speaking, Kristina did not have a reproductive system ready for it. Each surrogate mother’s pregnancy cost her about 10,000 euros.
The unborn child is automatically the one who provided the genetic material. The surrogate mother has no right to it, and all receive counseling and sign documents before becoming pregnant. Only young women who have already had a pregnancy, have a clean medical history and a healthy lifestyle are elected. Surrogate mothers do not have direct contact with their parents.
