33-Year-Old Mom Of 12 Has Been Pregnant For (Almost) 17 Years Straight

Britni Church is going viral for revealing that at 33, she's been pregnant for almost 17 straight years as a mom of 12.

There's having a big family, and then there's having a big family, and one mom on TikTok definitely knows the difference. While being pregnant with one or two kids is often enough for some moms, Britni Church decided once or twice wasn't enough for her — the 33-year-old mom has 12 children, and has been pregnant almost every year since her first baby was born.

Church has gone viral on social media for the sheer size of her family.

Britni Church gave birth to her first child when she was just 16 in 2004, and excluding thee years (2013, 2017, and 2022), she's been pregnant every year since.

"I think I'm done," Church said to TODAY Parents.

Church has five girls and seven boys.

“There’s always noise. Someone is always screaming,” Church revealed. “But it’s just normal for us. I’m able to drown it out somehow.”

“A lot of people assume we’re on welfare — we’re not,” Church added of the misconceptions and common questions she receives.

“I get a lot of questions like, ‘Are you Catholic? Are you religious?’" she went on.

"I’m Pentecostal, but that has nothing to do why I have so many.”

Church and her husband share six of the twelve kids (Silas, 7, Christopher Jr, 5, Oliver, Asher, and Abel, 3, and Rowyn, 11 months) while the other six are from previous relationships (Crizman, 17, Jordan, 16, Caleb, 14, Jace, 13, Cadence, 12, And Jesalyn, 10).

"We are happiest when we're all together," Church revealed.

“We’ve got a big waterslide and we’ve been having cookouts and sitting around the fire pit. Life is good.”
