A MUM-OF-ELEVEN is thrilled to be pregnant again, just months after saying she was keen to grow her family by four.
Britni Church, 32, gave birth to triplets Oliver, Asher and Abel just over a year ago – and is now expecting baby number 12 with her husband Chris, 29.

The full-time mum, who recently defended her large brood, announced the news in a clip on TikTok by showing a positive pregnancy test.
Britni and her daughter Crizman, 16, who is the oldest of the bunch, first teased the announcement on the family TikTok page, and later confirmed in a separate clip.
After asking their followers to guess the news, many correctly predicted Britni was pregnant for the ninth time, with some even saying she might have triplets again.
The soon-to-be mum-of-12 said: “We normally tell everyone right away but this time we decided to wait.

“After our loss in September I was afraid to hope.”
But now at seven weeks along, and one step closer to reaching her goal of 15 kids, the excited mum said she can’t wait to meet the newest member of the family.
The mum-of-11 previously said she wanted more kids, particularly another baby girl, despite already going through 600 nappies a week.
Earlier this year, Britni said: “I hope we’ll try to have another girl still. I don’t think I would ever have more than 15 kids but then again I never thought I’d have 11 kids.”
Britni, who shares details about her life online, has defended her large brood in the past and said they are “just like everyone else” after being criticised for her super-sized family.

Despite what people think of her, the full-time mum swears her life isn’t endless chaos and says she doesn’t rely on benefits to support her family.
Previously speaking to CafeMom, she said: “People assume a lot of things about us that just aren’t true – we are just like everyone else.”
She also explained how life as a mum-of-11 can be tricky – not only because motherhood is hard but because people are quick to assume “the kind of people who would want to have a lot of children.”
Setting the record straight, she revealed: “We aren’t on food stamps, but we don’t look down on those who need them. We aren’t ignorant, and we aren’t Catholic or Mormon but I do believe in Jesus.”

The US-based mum from Arkansas City, Kansas, had her first child, Crizman, 16, six days after her sixteenth birthday with her ex-husband.
They ended up having another four children together – Jordan, 14, Caleb, 13, Jace, 12 and Cadence, ten – but broke up in 2010.
After the divorce, Britni said she went through a carefree phase, partying at weekends, and unexpectedly fell pregnant with her sixth child, Jesalyn, now eight, in 2012.
She spent three years raising six kids alone as a single parent before meeting her current husband, Chris, a sub-contractor, in 2014.
The pair have since had another five kids together, and are now expecting their sixth.
In other real-life news, a mum-of-14 says she’s lucky she can afford it because they spend £2.5k a MONTH on food & go through 20 loo rolls a week.
We also reported on a mum-of-19 with 14 grandchildren – who has five washing machines, three driers and still can’t believe she had more than two kids.
