I’m a mum-of-six boys and pregnant, I’m sick of people asking how I afford my kids AND presuming I’m trying for a girl

A PREGNANT mum of six boys opened up about life raising and home-schooling her brood of lads and the questions she gets asked most frequently.

American pastor's wife Ariel Tyson shares glimpses of her hectic life on Instagram and TikTok where they have a combined following of more than 2.3 million.

The former college professor is currently pregnant expecting a seventh baby, although this is her eighth pregnancy as she sadly lost one child.

Along with her husband Michael, the pair decided not to find out the gender of the new baby, despite receiving constant questions about the sex.

Ariel explained that she is constantly asked about the sex of her baby but more frustratingly than that, she is often asked if she's disappointed that she doesn't have any girls.

She explained that this can be a hurtful question and suggested an alternative that celebrates the parent instead.

She said: "A good response to a mama of all boys or all girls or lots of kids is: 'Wow amazing!!! Love that you have all these boys/girls/kiddos! What a blessing!'"


Ariel and her husband Michael's boys have all been between 7.5-8.5lbs with four of them born at home and another home-birth planned for the newest arrival.

In a message Ariel penned to her unborn child, she said: "No matter if you’re a girl or a boy, because sadly, that also seems to determine your value to many, you will have a special place in our family for your entire life."

Despite clearly not having fertility problems with their giant brood, the family faced tough times.

Ariel explained: "I was told after we lost our first that there was a 90% chance I’d lose every baby I got pregnant with, BUT God, using the gift of a very special doctor who performed a surgery invented only a few years before I had it done, made it possible.

"The miracle isn’t lost on me. If you’re going through infertility or loss, I do see you and it’s ok to grieve and to surround yourself with people who care and listen.

"I had plenty around me who wouldn’t, but I found a tribe of mamas who’d walked the road before me and spoke into my life.

"Also, people often ask us about adoption and if we’d be willing to ever adopt and yes, we ALWAYS have since we first got married and had thought we’d walk that path immediately with my first diagnosis."

The family live in Tennessee where they recently moved and are currently renovating their new home.

Elsewhere in property stories, I took on a second job to borrow £26k extra to help buy £255k first home.

And this quirky 1-bed flat is spacious for London – and it comes with even BIGGER surprise.
