Prgnancy is not for the faint-hearted. Trust me I know that much. Iris Purnell is a mother of twelve children who loves showing off her beautiful family on Tiktok.

Iris has spent 16 years in a row being pregnant. Yep! You read that right! The woman in an amusing clip for her 350k followers revealed she was pregnant every year between 2004 and 2019. She defended her experience saying she loves carrying babies.


This time around, she is done having children. Iris has had her tubes tied. After the medical procedure to tie her tubes, Iris adds that she is adjusting to not carrying a pregnancy anymore. That it's hard accepting this fact.

“Not all my pregnancies were easy,” Iris explained. “I had six C-sections… but being pregnant gave me a spiritual elevation. I learned to be patient and to sit still with my body.”

The mother of twelve is a choreographer by profession which explains why most of her family videos on her Tiktok channel are her children and husband dancing.
