A mum of 12 is excited to welcome her 13th child, saying she is ‘addicted’ to having babies.
Cheryl Prudham, 34, receives around £40,000 a year in benefits and has regularly spoken out about her larger than average family.

 She had six of her children with former husband Robert, and they planned a trip to Las Vegas together to rekindle their marriage and renew their vows.

However, the relationship did not work out and she is now expecting a baby with

new partner Lee Ball.
Appearing on This Morning, she defended herself against critics who said she should not be paid so much by the state, saying ‘I think about my kids and my family and that’s it.’

 Now working as a part-time cleaner she was confronted by Holly Willoughby who asked her: ‘How can you sleep at night?’
Proud mum Cheryl said: ‘It’s not just going into my pocket though, let’s be honest.’
Cheryl does not live with her new partner, and having another child could potentially see her being granted another £712 benefits every year.

Cheryl has gone from being pregnant in a homeless hostel in Kent aged just 17 to living with her 12 children in Lancashire.
Back in 2016 she said she just wanted to have a child and not have a relationship.
‘I was hurt by Robert and find it difficult to trust again. Besides, how would I find a guy willing to take on all my children?’ she told Closer.
‘But I’m feeling broody again as my youngest is nearly a year old and I miss having a newborn in my arms. I would love a boy next.
‘Signing up to a donor website is the perfect solution. I want a smart, good-looking man who’ll donate sperm for artificial insemination – I want nothing to do with him after that.’
