But what about having twenty babies... all at the same time?

Well, this is exactly what twenty-three-year-old Kristina Oztur has done!

Kristina, who is originally from Russia, currently lives in Georgia with her millionaire businessman husband Galip, fifty-seven, and the pair have paid approximately $195,000 to surrogates for babies over the past year and 2 months.

The young mom already had her 6-year-old daughter, Victoria, when she first met Galip...

And the couple welcomed their first baby, Mustafa, via surrogate in March last year.

"I've dreamed about this since childhood."

"My husband also dreamed about having a big, happy family. So after we met, we started to put our dream into action," Kristina explained to local media.

"Our romantic relationship has changed but then our whole lives have changed, not just the romantic part."

​"Our surrogacy clinic is amazed but happy to help us with our dream of a big family."

"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," she said.

​Right now, Kristina is the mom of twenty-one children in total...

And the babies are:

Mustafa, fourteen months; Mariam, thirteen months; Ayrin, thirteen months; Alisa, thirteen months; Hasan, 1; Judi, 1; Harper, eleven months; Teresa, eleven months; Huseyin, eleven months; Anna, ten months; Isabella, ten months; Ismail, 9 months; Mehmet, 9 months; Ahmet, 9 months; Ali, 8 months; Kristina, 8 months; Sara, 7 months; Lokman, 7 months; Galip, 6 months; and Olivia, 4 months.

The surrogates of each baby - who were used to speed up the growth of the family - were paid approximately $10,000 each for their "services"...

And the couple have sixteen nannies hired, earning a wage of only $495 a month.

The nannies work a rolling schedule of 4 days on, 2 days off, and all live-in with bedrooms near the kids.

And when it comes to expenses, the family gets through around twenty large packages of nappies every week and fifty-three packs of baby formula.

"It costs about $5,000-$6,000 per week for essentials for all the kids. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a bit less," Kristina explained.

Of course, her husband's millionaire status covers these expenses rather comfortably.

The family lives in a 3-story mansion, with each of the kids sharing, 2 or 3 to a room.

"That's while they are so small, then we will separate them later. For now, we have 3 floors at home. In the future, maybe we will build more floors, maybe we will buy a bigger house. We don't have an exact plan, because right now we have enough space for everybody."

Of course, everyone has been wondering the same thing...

Does Kristina have the time to tend to all of her children regularly?

"I'm doing my best. My favorite child is my husband - sometimes he is like one more kid! All our kids are the best children in the world, I love them equally to the moon and back," she said in the interview.

Although some may not agree with her decisions, Kristina insists her kids are happy and says it's none of anyone else's business.

"We don't get to choose our parents. Some kids may not want to be an only child, but their parents have other ideas."

"It is life - you are who you are, my kids can choose to make their future family however they want."

"To people who disagree with my choices, I say don't have so many kids if you don't want them, that's your choice... Don't use surrogacy if you don't want, that's your choice. But this is our life, and it's our choice," she explained.

As long as her children are happy and healthy, that is all that matters!

What do you think about Kristina's parenting method? Do you think it's irresponsible and selfish to have that many babies at once? Or do you think it's fine as long as they're all well looked after?
