A woman is being forced to raise her 12 children on her own after her husband dumped her.
Cheryl Prudham, 32, married Robert, 29, of the United Kingdom.
Both claim that the other was cheating.
Now, Prudham said that she has been abandoned during her twelfth pregnancy. Prudham has 12 children by three different men. 5 of her children, including a set of twins, were fathered by Robert.
Baby number 12 is the sixth child of the couple.
Prudham claims that her husband has been cheating on her with his Facebook friends since they met.
However, she was desperate for a stable family life and to give her children a home with a mother and a father, something that she never had but always longed for.
Prudham became pregnant with her seventh child barely two months after her first date with Robert. After she told him about the pregnancy, Robert moved from Manchester to live with his expanding family in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
“He seemed unfazed. I had six children and soon my world revolved around him,” he said. The two got married and went on to have more children.
However, the cheating accusations on both sides led the husband to dump his wife, leaving her to care for all 12 children on her own.
Robert said that when the 12th baby is born, he wants a DNA test done as he believes the baby belongs to another man.
Prudham has sparked controversy earlier this month, when she revealed that she was pregnant with her 12th child because she gets £38,000 ($57,000) a year in government benefits.
Prudham had her first child, George, 15, when she was only 17 years old. She had her son Jack, 13, with the same man before breaking up with him.
She went on to date a man who worked as a butcher and had daughters Caitlin, 9, Maisie, 8, Millie, 7, and Madison 6.
With Robert she has Leon, 4, and Lenny, 3, Lainey, 2, and twins Lacey-May and Lexy-Rose, who are less than 1 year old.
