Mum, who became pregnant for the first time at the age of 14, and who ‘never uses contraception,’ is expecting her 12th child.
Veronica Merritt, 36, has had 11 children over the course of 22 years, with her first pregnancy occurring when she was just 14 years old – which makes sense given that she never, ever uses contraception for health reasons.
A mother of eleven who gave birth to her first child at the age of 14 is expecting her second child.
Veronica Merritt, 36, will reach a perfect dozen next summer after announcing she is expecting her second child.
“#12kids,” the popular TikToker captioned the news.
Veronica, a New York mother, had her first kid when she was 15 years old, and her eldest daughter Victoria is now 21 years old.
She has no intention of slowing down.
According to The Sun, she has stated that she wants to have 17 children before her family is “complete.”
Because of various health issues, Veronica says she never uses contraception.
She stated, ” “I have kidney disease and had to have one of my kidneys removed last year.
“I received honors in high school and attempted college twice, but both times I became ill.
“Some of the kids were pre-planned.” However, because of my sickness, I am prone to blood clots, I am unable to utilize hormonal birth control.
“I haven’t ruled out the possibility of having more children.” I’d like to have another six. I’ve been pregnant for eight and a half years.” Veronica is the mother of 11 children from two different men.
Marty, Veronica’s current beau, is the father of her most recent seven children.
Victoria, 21, Andrew, 16, Adam, 15, Mara, 13, Dash, 12, Darla, 10, Marvelous, eight, Martalya, six, Amelia, four, Delilah, three, and Donovan, one, are Veronica’s children.
Veronica stated that the prospect of having additional children isn’t as frightening now that she’s been pregnant for so long.
