We’re a family of 14 – trolls say our babies are cash cows & we should be ashamed, we barely have space but we love it | The Sun
ONE of Scotland's biggest families has revealed what it's really like living as a family of 14.
Zoe Sullivan, 44 has been pregnant for 19 years, resulting in 12 children with her husband Ben.
The mum explained that many people wanted to be a 'fly on the wall' in the families home to see what goes on in such a big family, which led them to start a social media account.
Although the couple love having a big family and showing it off online, the mum revealed to Truly that it has garnered negative attention.
She read out some of the nastier comments sent to them including 'Your baby is obviously just your cash cow' and 'You and him should be ashamed of yourself.'
Despite trolls claiming their kids are cash cows, Zoe stated the couple provide for their kids financially with Ben at work.
