A mother-of-nine who claims £38,000 a year in handouts and demanded a bigger council house for her huge family is pregnant again - this time with twins.
Cheryl Prudham, 32, and her husband Robert, 29, are set to receive at least a further £1,400 in handouts when the baby girls arrive.
Mrs Prudham said she will 'not be made to feel guilty' for having children' as she and her husband both work part-time.
Last year the couple, from Sittingbourne, Kent - who were living in a three-bedroom council house at the time - said they were entitled to a bigger house, because they both work part-time.
Eventually the couple were able to arrange a house swap and they moved to a £200,000 property, also in Kent, the Sun reports.
But the expectant mother is still not happy with the swap - organised via Facebook with a family looking to downsize - because she had to move away from her preferred area of Sittingbourne.
She admits her huge brood were not especially planned because she and her husband do not like using contraception.
Speaking after her bid for a new house last year, she said: 'In the past I have been on contraception but I got pregnant with the coil and the pill just doesn't settle well with me.
'We don't use condoms and me and Rob have never talked about it.
'I did rely on benefits before but I am motivated to be more than a mother.'
And she admitted: 'I was surprised by the cost of our kids in the end.'

Mother of nine who claims £38,000 in benefits to receive £1,400 more after falling pregnant again with TWINS... but says she doesn’t feel ‘guilty’
Maybe the City should just buy them a big screen TV and tell them to get another hobby...
Surprised at the cost of the kids?? Why? You’re not paying for them — productive British taxpayers are.
This is selfishness and gluttony. Entitled to others paying for your large, ever-increasing brood. Look at the lessons those kids are learning, they’ll wind up being like mom and dad.
Honey! ...I've fallen pregnant and can't get up!
Not only that, she wants control of what neighborhood she lives in yet doesn’t want to be the one footing the bill.
The only surprising thing in this story is that they are not Muslim. I would bet that there are many, many large Muslim families in Britain on the dole.
Is it THAT hard to avoid sex?
There are tons of wanting spouses here in the U.S. that can give you pointers.
But it’s not allowed to criticize those families.
Demanding their fellow countrymen give them a bigger home and more money. ...they are entitled,they say.
“Honey! ...I’ve fallen pregnant and can’t get up!”
Not to worry, Ducky, I’ll get off ya now.
” - - - Falling Pregnant, those Brits are so funny.
Honey! ...I’ve fallen pregnant and can’t get up! - - - “
The Merry old England expression “Falling Pregnant” usually means that the woman fell on her back, nine months before.
“Getting up” is the man’s problem.
There are two ways to raise large broods successfully even with modest means: (a)everybody works and pitches in or (b)do the kids and a deserving couple a favor and adopt them out.
If she's unwilling to take (a), then she ought to be compelled to take (b).
Do you mean that she fell down on somebody's "Mr. Winkie " ??
Any other bruises , other than pregnancy ?
Oh the Whorrers of it all.. now she is elligible for disability too !!
Obviously ,.. they don't do much talking , or not enough talking !
Not much different than us, really.
Ain’t socialism grand?
Whatever’s going on here obviously has nothing to do with race and would affect any group of people the same way...
>She admits her huge brood were not especially planned because she and her husband do not like using contraception.
Wonderful. More welfare babies pinched off and added to the public teat. Why not get your plumbing neutered if you refuse to prevent adding more load to the overtaxed public?
Nothing wrong with big families....after all native Europeans are at risk of being outbred by Third-Worlders.
But perhaps those who wish to raise such a large brood would be better off in a more rural environment where the costs of raising children would be much lower.
Shouldn’t we be happy at least the children weren’t aborted?
Well, they are a bunch of cute kids, but all ten of them are learning at an early age how to live on government handouts. Perhaps they’ll all grow up to have ten kids apiece and on and on.
More importantly, I'm sure the children are happy they weren't aborted.
Perhaps they’d make a better impression if the husband wore something other than a wife-beater.
The dad can afford tattoos but not a house?
Is she Mexican?.
Yes, let’s have native families have their 1.2 children per household while Muslims breed like rabbits.
Do you agree to the per child tax credit that we have currently?
I agree with it to a point, and that point is where you pay $0.
No one should get back more in their income tax return than they paid in.
My mother’s grandmother and grandfather raised 11 children at the turn of the 19th century. One died in infancy. Back in those days the women stayed home and the men worked, and there were no modern convinces. They made it. My grandma never had her own new pair of shoes until she married. Most of her clothes were hand me downs, even her wedding dress was borrowed.
Mom and grandmother could never understand this constant consumption today of consumer goods. I guess I’ve inherited it too. I’m as low maintenance, cheap date as they come. A cup of coffee and a night looking t the stars is ideal.
Idiocracy was a pre-emptive documentary
Are you being deliberately obtuse? Big families are fine with me — as long as you don’t force taxpayers to support them. Multi-generational welfare is not a good thing.
I hear you. I’m torn on this.
I think the mother and husband should look for cheaper living arrangements, and be willing to accept that. But it would also be best at least if the mother stays at home and not work...And if it means they get some taxpayer support, fine.
Frankly, they are willing to take on a burden, that other “hipsters” are unwilling to do. Meanwhile native Brits one day will find themselves as a minority in their own country and wonder, “What the Hell happened?”
There’s nothing to criticize them FOR
The only problem here is that the government here, and in Britain, gives them money
They should say no
All the so called low govt ers on this site should stay out of it as well. Quit feeding into the birth control sick sick mentality
And criticize the government her and everyone else enabling this puke of a man to have sex with a woman when he’s incapable of supporting and providing for the outcome
Take away this fraction of a man’s ability to do so starting with this stupid woman allowing a man with no sense nor means of provider ship and u have no reason to call for killing the babies
A tax “credit” that exceeds what you’ve paid in isn’t a tax credit at all. It’s a stealth welfare payment.
Can you see that far into the future? How do you know those children won’t grow up to become productive citizens?
One way to guarantee that they will be “wards of the state” is to force both parents to work to support the children, without a stay at home parent.
As I stated, cheaper living arrangements should be found for them, they should make no demands on where they should live, if it is on others’ dime.
I’m not looking at the future. I’m looking at the results of the past sixty or so years of welfare spending right here in the US.
The good news is you don’t have to pay for them, they’re British.
I meant critize the muslim famlies doing the same thing.
You won’t be seeing any msm hit pieces on THOSE families. It might hurt their widdle feelings and stuff.
At least the kids in this family are British.
I thought the same thing. LOL I love some of the Brits expressions.
Muslim men are not noted for screwing around sitting around and taking taking and taking like western men have grown to do since the inception of birth control and women’s consequential putting up with every stupid lazy excuse for their idiot boyfriends to expect them to use birth control because these animalistic males have no intention of living like civilized humans and taking taking taking while being allowed by everyone ESP birth control
To treat women like sex objects
If Muslims latch on to this mentality they are stupid but this is a western notion
