BENEFITS mum-of-12 Cheryl Prudham is on the hunt for a sperm donor after announcing she wants to have baby number 13, The Sun reports. The baby machine wants to conceive artificially after giving husband Robert the boot for a sleazy threesome he had with his cousin earlier this year.
Cheryl – who was once dubbed Britain’s Most Shameless Mum on TV – admits she is addicted to getting pregnant and says she ‘feels broody again’. The 33-year-old told Closer magazine that men are “too much hard work” – and that “there’s no need for a dad” when adding to her mega brood.
Talking about her new baby plans shameless Cheryl said: “I don’t want another bloke because they are too much hard work. I was hurt by Robert and find it difficult to trust again. “Besides, how would I find a guy willing to take on all my children?
“But I’m feeling broody again as my youngest is nearly a year old and I miss having a newborn in my arms. I would love a boy next. “Signing up to a donor website is the perfect solution. “I want a smart, good-looking man who’ll donate sperm for artificial insemination. I want nothing to do with him after that.
“This baby will be all mine, there’s no need for a dad. I don’t know if I’ll have more I never say never!” Cheryl ditched hubby Rob after she discovered he had cheated on her just weeks after she gave birth.
She caught out the love rat after discovering naked photos of the woman on Rob’s phone, a friend claimed.
The couple reportedly took home £40,000 in benefits and avoided the £26,000 benefits cap because Rob worked enough hours as pizza delivery driver to claim working tax credits. Single Cheryl is now working as a part-time cleaner in Lancashire and said “another baby would mean more benefits”.
She added: “Another baby would mean more benefits so the more the merrier! “I’m not worried about getting hit by the benefits cap, there are always ways around it.” When her 12th child, Tillie Grace, was born Cheryl sparked outrage for saying she was “too tired” to push and choosing a C-section.
The surgery costs the NHS £2,500, compared to £1,000 for a natural birth. In January it was revealed she planned to use £4,000 of taxpayers money on a boob job but her latest pregnancy hopes means she has to put any cosmetic surgery on hold.
She added: “I’ve spent most of my life having babies and I wanted to treat myself and concentrate on me for a bit. ”I’ve had offers of dates but I can’t be bothered with men any more and I’ve realised having babies makes me happy.”
