NEW YORK (VINnews) — Moscow-born Christina Ozturk loves kids so much she wants to have at least 100 of them. Sounds impossible? When money is not an issue and the laws of surrogates in your country allow you to carry as many as you want via surrogate mothers, Ozturk’s goal might just be attainable. She has certainly hit the ground running, with 11 biological children at the tender age of 23, 10 of whom were born to surrogates.
Ozturk is married to millionaire businessman Galip Ozturk who is 33 years her senior. Despite being knee-deep in nappies already, the young mum loves family life so much that she and her husband are willing to spend up to €800,000 on having 100 babies by surrogate, according to a report by The Sun.
“At the moment, I have 10 children with the latest addition, Olivia, who arrived at the end of last month,” Christina told Newsflash media.
“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.”
The couple have mentioned on social media that they are thinking of having 105 children but admitted that this is simply a random number.
“I don’t know how many they will eventually be, but we certainly don’t plan to stop at 10,” said the baby-mad mum.
“We just not ready to talk about the final number. Everything has its time.”
The Ozturks live in the coastal town of Batumi in Georgia south of Russia where it is legal to use surrogate mothers in pregnancy, each of which cost around 8,000 euros.
Christina was a single mum of one child when she vacationed in the seaside town in Georgia and met Galip, a property and transport magnate originally from Turkey. The two shared a common love of children and decided to have a really big family without Christina having to suffer through multiple pregnancies.
“The clinic in Batumi chooses surrogate mothers for us and takes full responsibility for the process,” Christina said, adding that they are not personally acquainted with the surrogates and have no direct contact with them in order to avoid problems after the birth of the children. However Christina does offer diet and nutrition recommendations for the expectant mothers.
The couple will probably need to build a few extensions to their house to accomodate all the children. They will also require a large entourage of au pairs if they are to meet their ambitious goal.
