Bringing a new child into the family is one of the best things ever! It’s scary, overwhelming, and usually results in a few gray hairs. As you add more children, things usually get crazier and crazier, especially when you move out of “man to man” coverage and start “zone coverage”, to use football terms here.

For one woman, however, adding kids to the family is a dream and she isn’t stopping until she reaches 100!

Kristina Ozturk is a 24-year-old mom who is nearly a quarter of the way done with her goal of a 100-person family!

Kristina has been featured on news outlets all over the world and it makes sense – her story is wild! This young woman has a goal to have 100 children, all of them biologically hers. As far as things look, she might see it happen.

Kristina is married to millionaire businessman, Galip Ozturk, and they have had 20 kids via surrogate in the past year.

It all began when Kristina was 17 and had her first child. The Russian-born woman was visiting outside the country for the very first time when she met her now-husband. The two met in Georgia and hit things off, despite Galip being 57-years-old. After talking, they both had a dream of having a massive family.

“So after we met, we started to put our dream into action,” said Kristina, reported The Sun. “I’ve dreamed about this since childhood. My husband also dreamed about having a big, happy family,” – The Sun

At first, they tried to do things naturally but soon realized that their goal wasn’t possible without help.

Realizing they had some biological limitations, they turned to surrogacy. She reached out to a clinic and made all the appropriate appointments happen. Within 18 months, they had their first biological child via surrogacy.

“The clinic in Batumi chooses surrogate mothers for us and takes full responsibility for the process. We are not personally acquainted with surrogate mothers and do not have direct contact with them in order to avoid problems after pregnancy,” said Kristina.

Now, they have been having new children every few months along their timeline.

You might think that is a lot… and you would be right! Thankfully, it’s not just Kristina handling all the duties of being a mother. She currently enlists 16 full-time live-in nannies to help with duties. Otherwise, she couldn’t possibly handle everything alone!

Their cost breakdown is crazy!

If you were wondering how expensive it is, it’s a LOT. Each pregnancy costs $10,000 for the surrogate mother. Currently, the weekly cost for the necessities for the children is around $7,580. Additionally, nannies are paid $500 a week. In nannies alone, that’s $96k a year! If you aren’t a millionaire, it doesn’t look like having 100 kids is a realistic option.

Despite the size of the family, it’s clear that Kristina loves every last kid.

“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.” – The Sun

While having over 20 babies right now is a lot, just imagine how crazy the dinner bill is on a night out to eat when they are teenagers!

Check out Kristina’s Instagram page, which states in the bio that they’re up to 22 kids now!
