The story has been told of a millionaire businessman and his 23-year-old wife who have spent £138,000 on surrogacy over the last year in order to have 20 babies together.
Mum-of-one, Kristina Ozturk, and her husband Galip, 57, from Batumi, Georgia, have spent the last 14 months growing their family.
They splash out £67,700 a year on 16 nannies who care for their babies 24/7 – and their household isn’t even complete yet.
Kristina admits she wouldn’t rollout having 100 children!
Originally from Russia, Kristina met Galip on her first trip abroad to Georgia.
She already had a daughter, Victoria, six, and welcomed her first son, Mustafa, via a surrogate in March 2020.
Kristina and her husband had both dreamed of having a large family, but that it had changed their lives significantly.
She told Fabulous: “I’m not sure if we will be the biggest family in the world, but we are planning to be the happiest family in the world for sure.
“I’m with the kids all the time, doing all the things that mums normally do. The only difference is the amount of kids.
“Each day is different, from planning staff schedules to shopping for my family. I can tell you one thing – my days are never boring.”
The mum-of-21 also hasn’t ruled out having more babies naturally.
However, the duo have said they’ll not be having more children any time soon as they bond and get close to their existing children.
Detailing the finances of the situation, Galip and Kristina noted that they paid each surrogate £7,700 per pregnancy and their nannies were paid £350 a month each.
The nannies work four days on, two days off and live in the couple’s three story mansion where they have their own rooms and kitchen.
And, the family goes through a major amount of shopping thanks to their 21 children.
They use 20 large packs of nappies every week and 53 cartons of baby formula.
Kristina said: “It costs about $5,000-$6,000 (£3,500-£4,200) per week for essentials for all the kids. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a bit less.
“The kids each have their own wardrobes, but sometimes they share clothes for photos.”
The babies are: Mustafa, 14 months; Mariam, 13 months; Ayrin, 13 months; Alisa, 13 months; Hasan, one; Judi, one; Harper, 11 months; Teresa, 11 months; Huseyin, 11 months; Anna, 10 months; Isabella, 10 months; Ismail, nine months; Mehmet, nine months; Ahmet, nine months; Ali, eight months; Kristina, eight months; Sara, seven months; Lokman, seven months; Galip, six months; and Olivia, four months.
Currently they live two or three to a room but Kristina stated that they might add more floors to the home when the kids get older.
