A 24-year-old Georgia woman dreams of having dozens of babies. Kristina, who hails from Russia, met her husband on a trip to Batumi and fell in love. The young mom had 21 children in one year with the help of surrogacy. She takes care of the children with her millionaire husband, Galip. The couple is joined in their mission with 16 live-in nannies costing $96,000 per year. Despite the criticism she has received from others, Kristina maintains her family is a happy unit.
When the young mom met Galip, she was already a mother to a little girl named Vika. Consequently, the couple parents 22 children in total. The mother said she has always dreamed of having a big family. Kristina is not sure if they will have the biggest family in the world, but she wants them to be the happiest. She added:
My husband also dreamed about having a big, happy family. So, after we met, we started to put our dream into action.”
The now 24-year-old gave birth naturally to her first-born daughter when she was 17. However, the couple has paid around $258,000 to surrogates to have their children, which have all arrived in less than 18 months. It is certainly not cheap to feed, clothe and support all the babies, as well as their live-in nannies. Their group of nannies live on the property and work according to a specified schedule. They work four days on and are off two days, and each nanny has her own kitchen. When speaking of the costs, she said:
It costs about $6,544 to $7,850 per week for essentials for all the kids. The nannies are usually paid around $644 weekly.
According to the mother, their surrogacy clinic is delighted to help them accomplish their dream. She said every day is different, and thanks to her staff, she can plan enough time for her family. Kristina is still open to having kids naturally. For now, she wants to stay close to her babies before getting pregnant. Currently, the couple does not have any plans for additional surrogate babies.
Originally, the young mother and her 57-year-old husband planned to have a baby each year. Soon, they realized this idea would not work, and decided to take the surrogacy route. Upon finding out how much easier this method is than enduring a regular pregnancy, they wanted to see how many more they could have.
According to Kristina, it was love at first sight when she met Galip, a property and transport magnate originally from Turkey. They met each other the day she arrived for vacation. She describes her husband as her “mentor, guide, and fairytale prince all rolled into one.” Things progressed quickly for the couple, with Kristina and her young daughter moving to Batumi to be with Galip.
Although Galip, who already has adult children, is a lot older than his wife, he has no objections to increasing the size of his family substantially. This young mother has helped bring 22 children into the world and is not slowing down. After meeting her husband, Galip, during a vacation in Georgia, her first overseas trip, the pair quickly began working on making a family. Her Instagram page suggests the couple might have more than 100 if she can take care of them all.
