A mom of eleven children who has been pregnant every year since she got married isn't quite done growing her family...
And she plans on having a total of fourteen children.
Not everyone's cup of tea, right?!
Read on to find out more about this ambitious mom...
Now, all parents can agree that welcoming a child into the world is an amazing experience.
The whole thing is simply magical and it truly releases the inner warriors in women after a grueling 9 months of pregnancy.
The labor isn't so magical, however...
The labor of childbirth is known for being one of the most painful things that the human body can experience.
It is the one thing that many women simply dread.
A combination of intense muscle tightening, abdomen cramps, pain in the torso and pelvic area, back pain, contractions from the uterus, and, eventually, pushing a baby out of your body... It's certainly no walk in the park!
But of course, having a happy and healthy baby is totally worth the pain...
And some parents want as many children as possible.
And amazingly so, some women find that their bodies can remarkably birth numerous children without any complications...
Which often results in some very large families!
Well, this is what brings us back to today's story.
Thirty-six-year-old Courtney Rogers has been married to her Pastor husband, Chris, since 2008, and remarkably, she's been pregnant every single year since tying the knot.
She and Chris are currently the proud parents to eleven children...
But they aren't quite finished there! As they are aiming to make it to fourteen children.
And it's gotten the online parenting community talking...
With many thinking the constant pregnancies are a little excessive and unneccesary.
But many have applauded the mom for welcoming such a big, happy family into the world.
Courtney and Chris, who currently reside in Santa Fe County, New Mexico, welcomed their eleventh child into the world in November 2020...
And currently, their brood consists of 6 boys and 5 girls:
Clint, eleven, Clay, 9, Cade, 8, Callie, 7, Cash, 6, twins Colt and Case, 5, Calena, 4, Caydie, 2, Coralee, twenty-three months, and Caris, 6 months.
Courtney, the eldest of 6, met Chris through mutual friends at a church camp in Georgia in 2007.
She's not had more than 9 months without being pregnant since she married her husband, who is the eldest of ten children.
The couple, whose monthly food shops cost a whopping $1,200, home-school their huge brood and drive a fifteen-seater van, according to The Sun.
But eleven still isn't enough for the eager mom and dad.
"We want to have more if we can," Courtney explained, "We want to have twelve children, a family of fourteen even."
But it's not a cheap job having that many children.
The children wear hand-me-down clothes and shoes, with stay-at-home mom Courtney hitting the sales to save money.
Courtney and Chris also never buy Christmas presents for each other, so they can afford to spend $100 each on the kids during the festive season.
Courtney admits that she's been criticized by strangers numerous times for having so many children... and so close together!
"The people who ask how I can give all my kids enough attention are usually those who send their kids off to school," she said, "I do not understand their logic when I am around my kids twenty-four hours a day."
She said that homeschooling means that every lesson can be easily adapted and she's not forcing her children to sit still for hours at a time.
The flexibility allows them to run around outside and feed lambs on their farm between lessons.
The mom then admitted that she "loves being pregnant" and has never suffered from morning sickness.
She doesn't like using birth control but says it isn't for religious reasons, and just "doesn't like the idea of taking a pill."
Well, as long as Courtney, Chris, and their children are happy and healthy...
That's all that matters!
