A 38-year-old mother who is pregnant with her sixteenth child says having many kids won’t deter her from having more babies in the future.
38-year-old Patty Hernandez and her husband, 37-year-old Carlos, from North Carolina live in a five-bedroom house that has a nursery room with five cribs.
They spend around $500 a week on food and supplies and are now looking for a new vehicle as their 16-seater car can no longer accommodate all of them.
Despite having more kids than most parents can imagine taking care of, Patty and Carlos, who works as a floor cleaner, love caring for their growing family.
“People ask me all the time, ‘Are they all yours?’” Patty shared. “Everybody’s amazed when they find out how many kids I have, especially because I’m such a petite person. I never thought I’d have so many babies.”
It was in 2019 when Patty first made headlines after speaking out about her big family. While she admitted raising many kids can be stressful, the mother-of-15 says she’s happy to have more babies.
“It is a bit more stressful and difficult with a newborn,” she expressed. “The babies are always crying and I have to take care of them. But it is a blessing, we enjoy it.
“We have left everything to God so whatever God wants to give us we will be happy. We don’t use contraception.”
“I’m so happy when I’m pregnant. Around three months after I have a baby I usually get pregnant again,” Patty added.
“Right now I have a thousand clothes to wash – that’s at least five hours of folding clothes every two days. I do laundry at least four times a week
“When the kids play, they often leave toys on the floor so I need to clean that up too. I try to give them a daily routine to clean up after themselves. They have their own chores. The older one makes his own pancakes sometimes, but most of the time I am the one doing the cooking.”
