Despite spending £67,700 per 12 months on 16 nannies, a Russian woman and her rich husband have received 21 surrogate babies in just over a year and believe she is still a “hands-on mother.” Kristina Ozturk, a 24-year-old Moscow native, wants 105 biological children with her wealthy hotelier husband Galip Ozturk, 57, whom she met while on vacation in the Georgian seaside town of Batumi. Between March 2020 and July this year, the couple paid €168,000 (£142,000) to surrogates and spent $96,000 (£67,700) per year on 16 live-in nannies.
‘I’m with the kids all the time, doing all the things that parents generally do,’ Kristina said to Fabulous, who also lives with her six-year-old daughter Vika from a previous relationship. The mother, who is supposed to reside in a three-story home with her family, previously stated that she and Galip used surrogate women in order to produce as many children as possible as rapidly as possible. Mustafa, their first kid, was born on March 10, 2020, while Judy, their 21st child together, is just three months old.
Kristina, who spends £4,000 a week on baby supplies including 20 huge bags of diapers and 53 packets of baby formula, updates her 162,000-follower Instagram account with updates on her hectic life. Her photos show frantic mealtimes, a mother playing with her children, and infants being pushed in a group of double prams on walks. She revealed the family’s schedule in a recent Instagram Q&A, admitting that the youngsters dine separately from their parents throughout the week because father Galip comes home late from work, according to Fabulous.
The couple’s nannies work a four-day-on, two-day-off schedule and are all live-in, with beds near the kids and their own kitchen. One follower wondered if the mother could spend meaningful time’ with each of her numerous children. Mustafa, 19 months, Mariam, 18 months, Ayrin, 18 months, Alisa, 18 months, Hasan, 17 months, Judi, 17 months, Harper, 16 months, Teresa, 16 months, Huseyin, 16 months, and Anna, 15 months are the children of Kristina and Ozturk. Isabella is 15 months old, Ismail is 14 months old, Mehmet is 14 months old, Ahmet is 14 months old, Ali is 13 months old, Kristina is 13 months old, Sara is one, Lokman is one, Galip is 11 months old, Olivia is nine months old, and Judy is three months old.
‘I don’t know how many there will eventually be, but we certainly don’t intend to stop at ten,’ the mother-of-22 recently disclosed she and her husband considered having over 100 children, saying: ‘I don’t know how many there will eventually be, but we surely don’t plan to stop at ten.’ Kristina, a Russian native, was a single mother when she chose to relax by travelling to the beach in Batumi. The ‘Las Vegas of the Black Sea,’ as it is known, is a renowned tourist resort at the foot of the Caucasus. She characterized Galip, a Turkish property and transportation billionaire, as her mentor, guide, and fantasy prince all wrapped into one,’ and said it was love at first sight when she met him on her first day there.
Kristina and her small daughter Vika moved to Batumi to be with Galip, and things moved swiftly for the pair. Despite the fact that Galip was much older than her and had his own adult children, Kristina stated that he had no reservations about having a large family. The couple decided that they wanted to have as many children as possible. Kristina explained that they had planned to have a kid every year at first, but she rapidly realized that her reproductive potential was insufficient to satisfy their needs. They chose to employ surrogate moms, which costs around $9,707 each pregnancy.
Surrogacy has been legal in Georgia since 1997, as long as the pair is heterosᴇxᴜᴀʟ and married. The surrogate has no rights to the kid, which is immediately given to the people who donated the genetic material for the creation. Before becoming pregnant with children that are genetically related to Kristina and her husband, all of Kristina’s potential surrogates undergo counseling and sign legal documentation. Only young women who have already had at least one pregnancy are chosen, and they must be free of any ʜᴀʀᴍful habits or addictions before being accepted into the program. The women are given psychological counselling to make sure that they are ready and prepared for the challenge, which will include giving up the baby when it’s born.
However, the couple’s journey has not been easy, with Kristina adding that one of the surrogate moms wanted to retain the kid after it was born. The surrogate had no rights and had to pass the kid over to the parents because the infants were genetically from Kristina and her husband. The couple wants more children and has spoken about having over 100, but they have opted to wait until their children are older before embarking on another surrogacy trip. Meanwhile, Kristina hasn’t ruled out biologically having more children but says it’s ‘not realistic’ right now with so many little children.
Many people believe the mother has a nanny army, but she claims she tries to spend as much time as possible with her enormous family. Kristina claims to handle most of the day-to-day childcare and ensures that she spends each day caring for and attending to her children. She did concede, though, that caring for such a huge number of youngsters at once has been more challenging than she anticipated. Kristina stated she “gives directions” on “what to read to children, in what order, when, and for how long.”
She also demands that nannies photograph each baby’s soiled nappy so she can see if the contents are ‘of a nice color and consistency.’ After putting the kids to bed, the mother gets to work on home tasks like making sure the food is in the fridge, planning dinners, and keeping track of health visits. She also mentioned that her eldest daughter frequently assists her in caring for the babies and that she enjoys being able to assist.
