Even though her youngest child is only five months old, a mother of eight sons has disclosed she is expecting again.
Yalancia Rosario, 29, of Dallas, Texas, is the mother of eight sons: Jamel, 12, Michael Jr., 9, Angelo, 8, Armani, 6, Prince, 5, Sincere, 3, Armani, 1, and Gimani, 5 months.
Another boy, Gimani died during her first trimester.
And now she is pregnant with baby number nine, due next year. “I do not know the sex yet but I always guess boy,” she joked.
The mega mum, who works from home running a business and is married to the boys’ dad Michael Rosario, 36, said: “I’ve always wanted a big family of 10 because I grew up as the oldest of seven and wanted to have my own big family to create memories with.
The couple never use contraception
“A few of my boys were conceived while on contraceptives but we happily welcomed them and then a few were planned.
“I don’t use contraceptives anymore. We live within our means and have a great budgeting system setup.”
With TikTok and Instagram pages showing her family life having 250,000 fans, she is sometimes trolled and accused of being on benefits – but she doesn’t care.
“I’ve never been judged so much as on the internet we always get ‘stop using our tax money’, ‘have you heard of birth control’ and ‘how many fathers do they have’,” she said.
“We also get ‘something is physiologically wrong with you’ but the positive always outweigh the negatives.”
She said she was destined to be a mother. “I do feel like I have a nurturing and patient soul,” she said, explaining her mammoth brood didn’t miss out on things because there were so many.
“Holidays are loads of fun, each kid has an amazing personality,” she explained.
“I’m huge on meal prepping and having everything set for the week every Sunday.
“I make sure I have meals pre-made. All of the children have designated dresses for every day of the week.
“We all wake up around 6am, get ready for the day, have breakfast together, have our talks of affirmations and get everyone off to school.
“In-between work I get loads of clothes washed get meals cooked and I tend to my younger kids at home as well as cleaning before the older boys are home by 4pm and then we start our evening routines of eating, homework chores and family dinner with designated family nights
“I love being a mega mother and I don’t regret it.”
The parents love their boys but hope to have a girl
