Last year a Russian woman, Kristina Ozturk had one child, a six-year-old little girl. One year later, the mum has 20 additional biological children, all under the age of 15 months.
20 infants. HOW???
Kristina Ozturk really loves babies. Clearly. And she and her millionaire husband, Galip, 57, decided that they would like a large family and didn’t want to wait.
They live in Batumi, Georgia where it’s legal to use surrogate mothers in pregnancy. Kristina explains that over the past year, she’s used several different surrogates to have 20 infants.
All the babies are biologically hers and her husbands, and all were born between 10 March 2020 and 16 January 2021. Her eldest bub, Mufasa is 17 months while her youngest, Olivia, is nearly 8 months.

16 live-in nannies
In addition to their massive baby tribe, the couple also has 16-live-in nannies working around the clock. Each nanny works four days on, two days off. They all have bedrooms all near the kids’ room and their own kitchen to share.
She also explains that they go through 20 large packages of nappies every week and 53 packs of baby formula.
“It costs about £3,500 to £4,200 ($6,500 to $7,700) per week for essentials for all the kids,” Kristina Ozturk told The Sun, adding they pay their nannies £350 ($644) a week. “Sometimes [the costs are] a little more, sometimes a bit less.”
In addition to the daily expenses, each surrogacy costs around £8,000 ($AU12,500.).
At this stage, the family and their nannies all live in a three-story mansion with two to three babies sharing each room. She said there is plenty of space for everyone but isn’t ruling out moving to a larger property in the future.
From the pics she shares on Instagram, it looks like the babies have a crazy cool playroom too!
Kristina also admits that she hasn’t ruled out having more kids. She jokingly told a Russian publication that she would be happy to have 105 kids.
“It does not mean that we are planning to have 105 children,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Stop tearing up my direct comments in assessing our desire to have many children.”
“Don’t use surrogacy if you don’t want, that’s your choice. But this is our life, and it’s our choice.”
