A Georgia woman had 21 surrogate babies with her millionaire husband, saying that “my days are never boring,” the New York Post reports.
The couple wanted to have as many children as possible. However, Kristina Ozturk’s reproductive ability was rapidly shown to be insufficient to suit their needs.
As a result, between March 2020 and July 2021, Kristina Ozturk, a 24-year-old Russian immigrant, and her businessman husband Galip Ozturk, 57, paid $195,500 to surrogacy.
“I don’t know how many there will eventually be, but we certainly don’t plan to stop at 10,” said Kristina. Instead, she and her husband wanted to have over 100 children.
Victoria, Kristina’s 6-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, and one of Galip’s nine children also live with the couple, bringing the total number of children to 23.
Kristina hires 16 nannies to take care of the children day and night. She pays $96,000 per year for this care.
However, Kristina said she is still a caring mom. “I’m with the kids all the time, doing all the things that moms normally do.” she said according to the New York Post.
“I can tell you one thing—my days are never boring. Each day is different, from planning staff schedules to shopping for my family,” she said of her routine.
After the children go to bed, the mother attends to home tasks such as making sure the food is enough, planning menus, and keeping track of health visits.
Kristina has 160,000 Instagram fans, with who she shares details about her daily life.
“We have a special bond with every child.” she replied when asked if she could “spend quality time” with each of her children.
“I wish every parent to be able to spend all their time with their children because this is the most important thing in life.” the young mother added.
Mustafa, their first child, was born on March 10, 2020, while Judy, their 21st child, is only three months old.
“She was the kind of wife I always wanted for myself, an uncut diamond where I saw what a pure and kind heart she had,” Galip said of his wife, with whom he had a love-at-first-sight relationship.
According to the Daily Mail, Georgia has legalized surrogacy since 1997, provided the couple is married and not same-sex.
The child born automatically goes to the people who provided the genetic material for the conception, and the surrogate does not have any rights.
Kristina’s potential surrogates go through counseling and sign legal paperwork before becoming pregnant with children genetically from Kristina and her husband.
