A Couple With 11 Kids 'Aim' For A 100 More To Create The ‘World’s Largest Family’

"I don’t know how many they will eventually be, but we certainly don’t plan to stop at 10. We are just not ready to talk about the final number," the wife said

A millionaire couple from Moscow, Christina Ozturk, 23, and her husband Galip Ozturk, a wealthy hotel owner, are parents to 11 children and hope to have at least a hundred more babies through surrogate mothers, Unilad reported.

In the coastal town of Batumi, Georgio, where the couple lives, it is legal to have babies using surrogate mothers. The town is a very special one for the couple. Christina was a single mother when she first locked eyes with Galip on her very first day in the city, a meeting she calls being love at first sight. She describes Galip as being her ‘mentor, guide and fairytale prince all rolled into one.' Galip shared this fairy tale view of their first encounter, recalling, "She is so easy to be with, she always has a smile on her lips and yet at the same time is shy and mysterious. 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."

Things moved quickly after, Christina and her young daughter Vika moved to Batumi and although Galip was much older with adult children of his own, he told Christina he had no objections to having a large family. They then decided that they wanted to have as many children as possible. However, the couple realized that she would not be able to bear enough herself to keep up with their 'goal'. The couple then decided to opt for surrogate mothers. Since money was never a concern for them, the couple was okay with the fee they had to pay for each mother. Galip and Christina are now parents to 10 children in addition to Vika, reported Unilad

She then explained how it all works out for them, "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. All communication takes place through the clinic, we only monitor health indicators, I make up a dietary menu for mothers so that the food is complete, I look at the test results."

"At the moment, I have 10 children with the latest addition, Olivia, who arrived at the end of last month. I gave birth to my eldest daughter Vika myself six years ago. The rest of the children are genetically ours from my husband and I, but were carried by surrogates," Christina said. The couple has previously expressed on social media about wanting 105 children, however, they admitted this had just a random number. "I don’t know how many they will eventually be, but we certainly don’t plan to stop at 10. […] We just not ready to talk about the final number. Everything has its time," Christina further added.
