Veronica Merritt, 36, had 11 children over 22 years, with her first pregnancy just 14 years old – but it makes sense considering she never used contraception for health reasons
An eleven-year-old mother who had her first child at 14 is expected again.
Veronica Merritt, 36, will hit a perfect dozen next summer when she announced she’s pregnant again.
The popular TikToker has given the message a title: “# 12kids”.
New York mother Veronica had their first child when she was a 15-year-old school girl with their eldest daughter, Victoria, who is now 21.
And she has no intention of slowing down.
She has said she would like to have 17 children before her family is “complete,” The Sun reported.
Veronica stated that she never used contraception due to some health problems.
She said, “I have kidney disease and I lost my kidney last year.
“I graduated from high school with honors, tried college but got sick both times.
“Some of the children were planned. But I can’t use hormonal birth control because my illness means I’m prone to blood clots.
“I haven’t excluded other children. I would like six more. I was eight and a half years pregnant. “
Veronica’s 11 children come from two different husbands.
The current Beau Marty, 37, is the father of Veronica’s youngest seven.
Overall, Veronica’s children are Victoria (21), Andrew (16), Adam (15), Mara (13), Dash (12), Darla (10), Marvelous (8), Martalya (6), Amelia (4), Delilah (3) and Donovan (1).
Veronica admitted that the idea of having more children isn’t that daunting since she’s been pregnant for so long.
