A mother of eight has hit back at ᴄʀɪᴛɪᴄs who ᴊᴜᴅɢᴇ her large family and assume that her kids don’t have the same father.
Yalancia, 29, also insisted that she and her partner, Mike, don’t claim benefits to raise their children and instead work hard like everyone else.
The couple has eight sons, and they share the details of their lives online, so those interested can follow the daily life of the Rosario family on social media.
Yalancia, who lives in the US with her family, said people are usually shocked to learn that she is just 29 years old and already has eight children.
She was only 17 when their first child was born, and they’ve continued to grow their family ever since.
“They always tell me I look too young to have such a family! I finished high school with great results before my first son was born at the age of 17, then I moved to Indiana and got my undergraduate education, all while expanding my family. Then we moved to Dallas for better opportunities,” Yalancia wrote on the family’s Instagram page.
The mom-of-eight revealed that people always question how many fathers are in the picture, and most don’t want to believe that all eight kids have the same father.
But Yalancia says even if there were multiple fathers, that wouldn’t matter because it doesn’t belong to anyone but them.
The couple’s first son was born in 2012, and the youngest only this year. Yalancia and Mike unfortunately ʟᴏsᴛ a baby just two weeks before giving birth – they didn’t hear her heartbeat and the baby was sᴛɪʟʟʙᴏʀɴ.
They have more than 30,000 followers on Instagram who are curious about the sometimes chaotic life of the Rosario family, as well as thousands following them on YouTube and TikTok.
Yalancia and Mike have also confirmed that they want to try again to expand the family further and want at least 10 children. They hope to finally have a daughter, but they will be happy even if they only have sons.
