A PREGNANT mom-of-11 has shared her parenting hacks for making sure she doesn’t lose any of her huge brood, during a trip to a crowded zoo.
Britni Church, 32, is currently pregnant with her 12th child with husband Chris, 29, after they welcomed triplets – Oliver, Asher and Abel – in 2019.

The 32-year-old, who had her first baby a few days after she turned 16, gives fans regular updates into her day-to-day life looking after her huge brood, on TikTok.
Britni posted a video to her TikTok page earlier today, answering a question one of her followers had asked her.
“When you go out do you always have to make sure you have everyone every second make sure you didn’t lose anyone (sic)” the person asked.
In response, Britni posted a video she had filmed during a family trip to the zoo.
The clip showed her husband, Chris, pushing the wagon the family used to cart around the youngest of their brood.
“Yes, we’re constantly keeping track of everybody,” she said in a voiceover, “especially when it’s crowded like it was yesterday”.
“Generally the little ones will hold on to the wagon, like Silas and Christopher are in the wagon right now but most of the time they are walking and they either hold on to the wagon or hold my hand.”
“Silas was ready to go,” Britni added, “as you can tell, he was done with the zoo for the day”.
“Asher and Oliver and Abel were hollering like a siren coming through – it was funny so I was recording it,” Britni said with a laugh.
In the clip, Britni’s five youngest boys; one-year-old triplets Asher, Oliver and Abel, as well as Silas and Christopher, are pictured sitting in the family’s wagon.

Her older children can be seen walking on either side of the wagon as the family wanders through the zoo.
“Jesalyn and Candence we don’t have to watch as closely but after crowded areas we did headcounts,” a caption on the video said.
The expectant mom-of-11 previously said she wanted more kids, particularly another baby girl, despite already going through 600 nappies a week.
Last year, Britni said: “I hope we’ll try to have another girl still. I don’t think I would ever have more than 15 kids but then again I never thought I’d have 11 kids.”
The mom, from Arkansas City, Kansas, had her first child, Crizman, 16, six days after her sixteenth birthday with her ex-husband.
They ended up having another four children together – Jordan, 14, Caleb, 13, Jace, 12 and Cadence, ten – but broke up in 2010.
After the divorce, Britni said she went through a carefree phase, partying at weekends, and unexpectedly fell pregnant with her sixth child, Jesalyn, now eight, in 2012.
She spent three years raising six kids alone as a single parent before meeting her current husband, Chris, a sub-contractor, in 2014.
The pair have since had another five kids together, and are now expecting their sixth.
Britni has defended her large brood in the past and said they are “just like everyone else” after being criticised for her super-sized family.

Despite what people think of her, the full-time mom swears her life isn’t endless chaos and says she doesn’t rely on benefits to support her family.
Previously speaking to CafeMom, she said: “People assume a lot of things about us that just aren’t true – we are just like everyone else.”
She also explained how life as a mum-of-11 can be tricky – not only because motherhood is hard but because people are quick to assume “the kind of people who would want to have a lot of children.”
