26-year-old Russian-born Christina Ozturk, lives in Georgia and she aspires to expand her family to three digits, aiming for a total of 100 children.
Digital Desk: Every woman's experience of becoming a mother is incredibly profound, but it is also undeniably challenging. Pregnancy can cause a range of mental and physical challenges. Due to the increased obligations that come with being a mother after childbirth, many women today choose to have only one child. It is astounding to find that a 26-year-old Russian woman named Christina Ozturk bucked this stereotype and is the mother of staggeringly 22 children instead of just one or two.
26-year-old Russian-born Christina Ozturk, lives in Georgia and she aspires to expand her family to three digits, aiming for a total of 100 children. You may be wondering how a 26-year-old can be the parent of 22 children. The reason for this is that 8-year-old Victoria, Christina's oldest daughter, was conceived naturally. However, all of her subsequent 21 children were born through surrogacy, with 20 of them arriving in the year 2020. Christina has a great love for all of her kids.
Olivia, their youngest daughter, was welcomed into the family in 2021. With her millionaire husband's help, Christina has stated that she wants to have 105 children in all. Interestingly, Galip Ozturk, her 58-year-old husband who owns a hotel, is 32 years her older. He was found guilty earlier this year of buying and possessing illegal substances, and he was given an 8-year prison sentence. Because of their financial advantages, they are still able to grow their family through surrogacy despite his incarceration.
Christina was on vacation in Batumi, Georgia, when she first met Galip. Christina wrote a book in February of that year, detailing her experiences as a mother of this big family. She has taken on the duty of raising their children by herself since her husband's detention. In an Instagram video, she opened up about feeling alone and acknowledged her husband's absence. She revealed that they had spent almost 1.4 crore rupees on surrogacy between March 2020 and July 2021 in an interview with The Sun's Fabulous Magazine.
With a combined salary of more than 68 lakh rupees, they once employed 16 midwives in their home. Their large family is taken care of by Christina thanks to her substantial wealth.
Christina Ozturk's inspiring tale defies expectations and shows the extraordinary journeys people may take to achieve their goals and fulfill their ambitions.
