Mum who got pregnant at 14 and ‘never uses contraception’ now expecting her 12th

A mum-of-eleven who had her first child at 14 is expecting again.

Veronica Merritt, 36, will hit a perfect dozen next summer as she announced she is pregnant once again.

The popular TikToker captioned the news: "#12kids".

New York mum Veronica had her first child when she was a 15-year-old schoolgirl, with eldest daughter Victoria now aged 21.

And she has no plans to slow down.

She has said she wants to have 17 kids before her family is 'complete', The Sun reported.

Veronica explained she never uses contraception because of some health conditions.

She said: "I have kidney disease and lost my kidney last year.

"I graduated high school with honours, I attempted college but got sick both times.

“Some of the children were planned. But I can't take hormonal birth control because my illness means I am prone to blood clots.

“I haven’t ruled out more children. I would like to have six more. I have spent eight-and-a-half years pregnant.”

Veronica's 11 kids are from two different husbands.

In all, Veronica's children are Victoria, 21, Andrew, 16, Adam, 15, Mara, 13, Dash, 12, Darla, 10, Marvelous, eight, Martalya, six, Amelia, four, Delilah, three, and Donovan, one.

Veronica admitted that because she has spent so long pregnant already, the idea of having more children isn't so daunting.
