While some might be fidgety at the thought of bringing a new life into this world, there is Britni Church who is a mother to 11 kids and has no plans to stop there. She might have never initially planned to give birth to all these children but that’s how things turned out to be for her. Now, she is enjoying every bit of this journey with all the screams and laughter in her house.
This 31-year-old mom from Kansas has quite a few bundles of joy besides her as she juggles between the chores and giving attention to each of those kids. We guess she must be wishing for days to be longer than just 24 hours! But Britni doesn’t let exhaustion come in her way and loves spending time with her toddlers and teenagers.
“I love having a big family — there’s always someone to talk to,” Britni shared. This mom has no regrets and is happy to be surrounded by a big and loving family. There might be a few “patience-testing” episodes but she doesn’t mind them now and deals with it in her way.
Britni has no intention to stop here and wants more kids. Yes, she is obsessed with children and it shows! She posts numerous pictures of her family on Instagram and keeps her followers updated with all that goes around in their jam-packed home. Her husband, Chris Church, 28, is also actively involved in handling this Instagram account apart from taking care of these kids.
Britni became a teenage mom at 16 in 2004. She gave birth to Crizman with her ex-husband. Her first kid, Crizman, is 15 years old now! When Britni brought him into this world, she thought that she would have a maximum of four kids but looks like, there was a change in plans.
This teenage mum had four more children with ex-husband – Jordan, 14; Caleb, 13; Jace, 12 and Cadence, 10. The couple separated in 2010 and this mother had a drastic shift in her lifestyle after that break-up. She spent her time partying and drinking. This is when she found out that she was pregnant yet again.
She had five kids already to take care of and now, the sixth one was on its way. In 2012, Jesalyn, entered this world and Britni describes her as “so innocent, precious and beautiful”. She felt a little uncomfortable about her sixth pregnancy but when she saw her baby girl, it all vanished! This superwoman managed to be a single mum to her six kids for three years.
She met Chris, her current husband in 2014, and her love for having kids only escalated from there. In 2015, she gave birth to Silas who is 5 now, and then a year later, Christopher was born. The fate had another surprise for this couple and they unwrapped it in 2019 when the couple was blessed with triplets Oliver, Asher, and Abel.
Their home must be teeming with all these children but according to Britni, “it does not feel like I have lots of kids — it feels normal.”
With all these kids, the expenses increase to a great extent and this couple reveals that side of their “abundant” story too. The groceries cost around $300 per week including 66 milk cartons, 600 diapers, and five cereal boxes. Okay, we might have to reconsider our family planning!
Apart from handling the finances, there are quite a few laborious tasks for the parents. Britni is in-charge of the laundry and you can only imagine the heap of clothes she washes, dries, and folds. Chris drives a 15-seater Ford Transit and has taken the responsibility to drop the kids to school every morning. It’s done in two rounds!
“We get lots of stares when we go out as a family. I don’t think I would ever have more than 15 kids but, then again, I never thought I’d have 11 kids,” this supermom says. But she also admitted that if ever her kids disapprove of having too many siblings, she would stop.
“We’d love to get some animals too. Maybe two dogs and a cat would be a good start,” Britni expressed her plans to expand the family with some furry friends.
