 Mum of 13 Wants More: Getting IVF Treatment for Christmas!
A mum of 13 kids, Debbie Simpson is getting a Christmas present of an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) because she wants "nothing" more "than another baby".

Children's author Debbie, 45, and her hubby Derek, 46, have collected 1,000pounds up till now for their expenses after she failed to get pregnant quickly for the first time.

Although, the couple do not qualify for treatment on the NHS and will have to manage their fund themselves, they have planned to spend some 3,000pounds on presents, food and decorations for the rest of their brood.

"We would never let our urge to have more babies stop us giving our children a fantastic Christmas," the Daily Star quoted Debbie as saying.

She said: "It's our own presents that we will skimp on to save money. There's nothing I want more than another baby."

Talking about having more kids Debbie said: "Having babies is my job. I love it and I'll keep trying until I'm 60.

"We didn't plan to have such a big fam-ily, it just kind of happened because there was no reason to stop.

"It's never taken me longer than six months to fall pregnant when we stop using contraception."

Derek added: "We don't feel our family is complete yet."

Debbie told Closer mag: "There's only a 3pc chance of falling pregnant at my age, but that's better than nothing."

She added: "On Christmas morning our living room is like a war zone but it's all about the kids.

"That's why it makes me sad, because all I want is another baby to make everything perfect. We've already thought of a name for our 14th, Rowan.

"The children are desperate for another baby, too.

"The other day little Lewis asked when the next new baby's coming because there's not been one for ages. That made me feel sad, I don't want to let the kids down."

They plan to enjoy a huge family Christmas in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, with Chloe, 23, Kimberly, 21, Natalie, 18, Benjamin, 16, Cameron, 15, Christopher, 13, Amy, 12, Nathan, 11, Lewis, nine, Jade, eight, Celeste, six, Olias, five, and Orlando, three.
