THERE’S always been stigma around women who are mums to kids with multiple fathers, often facing condemnation by others.
One of those is Phi, from Memphis, the US, who’s given birth to 11 children by eight different men.
The tattoo lover, who has over a whopping 90k followers on TikTok, regularly shares heart-warming and funny videos of herself having a good time with her bumper brood.
But having a larger number of children has also come at a high cost, as men always slam the mum and say they’d never marry her.
Revealing what’s it like being a mother to 11 offsprings, Phi also said there are some things she’s fed up of having to explain over and over again.
One of them, she said in a video posted on the app, is why she has ”eight baby daddies”.
And according to her, it’s simple – it’s all about maths.
”Let me explain it. If you have one and you take away one, you have zero.
”But if you have eight and you take away three, you still have five.”
To those struggling to understand, Phi added in more detail: ”If I only had 1 baby daddy and he leave or die my kids would be fatherless, butttt if I have 8 and 3 were to leave or die my kids still have 5 dads….
”like duhhhh yall gotta do the math,” she chuckled in the caption of the video.
Responding to baffled viewers, Phi also said – jokingly – that she doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon and won’t be happy with just 11 children.

”I wanna have like another 19, just so I could make it even, 30.”
When it comes to finding the perfect contestants for potential fathers to-be, the mum uses various means, such as Craigslist.
”But that’s kinda played out now so I usually just like post on Marketplace… or if I see like an empty billboard, I’ll post an add up there.
”Nothing too extreme, you know.”
Some trolls have also accused Phi of becoming pregnant only to get financial benefits from the government – but as the mum proved in a video, this is far from the case.
Zooming in a document stating their child support, Phi showed that the state only gives her $10 (just over £8) every four weeks.
”yall really making it seem like a crime,” the mum hit back at the cruel trolls who thought having eight baby daddies should be illegal.
But fortunately, Phi has also grown a supportive fanbase, with one saying: ”My mama got 9. we just say she was in love 9 times.”
