A 23-year-old mom who already has 11 kids says she wants to have 100 more to build the “world’s largest family.” Kristina Ozturk, who’s originally from Moscow, Russia but now lives in Batumi, Georgia with her millionaire husband, Galip Ozturk, will use surrogate mothers to increase the size of her family, though how many members she’ll eventually add remains to be seen.

- Christina was a single mother when she met Galip. She took a vacation to Georgia and was there less than a day when she met Galip, who she describes as “mentor, guide and fairytale prince all rolled into one.” It was love at first sight, especially for Galip. “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,” he recalled of their meeting. “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.”
- Christina and Galip decided to have as many children as possible. While Galip, who’s older than Christina, already had adult children when they met and Christina already had a daughter named Vika, they both wanted to have more. However, given how many kids they wanted – 100 or more! – there was no way that Christina would be able to birth them all.
- Surrogate mothers are helping their dreams come true. Each child birthed by a surrogate mother cost around €8,000 in total, and to date, they have added 10 babies to their ever-growing family. That’s a whole lot of diapers to change! “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,” Christina said. “The rest of the children are genetically ours from my husband and I, but were carried by surrogates.”
- While they originally said they wanted 105 kids, Christina said that’s not set in stone. While having 105 kids in total sounds nuts, Christina said that the number was totally random and they don’t actually know how many children they’ll eventually have. “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,” she said.
- They’re letting their current children grow up a bit before adding more. After all, taking care of 10 small babies is not easy, and Christina knows they need to get a bit bigger before more little ones come along. However, when that time comes, they’re ready. “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 contacts with them in order to avoid problems after pregnancy,” Christina explained of the process. “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.” Sounds like a plan!
