With 10 children to raise, Taina Licciardo-Toivola’s hands are already quite full.
But now, her family is growing again – when her daughter Cleopatra was pregnant at the age of 21.
Finnish-Australian mother Taina had seven sons and three daughters with her husband Paul.
These are Romeo, Jerusalem, Cleopatra, Shakespeare, Omega, D’Artagnan, Nefertiti, KingJames, Leonardo, Jenna and Aphrodite.
Cleopatra announced her pregnancy last month on family YouTube channel – posing in a white dress in the field, in a Meghan Markle-esque video.
The clip is captioned: “Coming to 2022. Cleopatra baby & baby Australia”.
Taina’s children are known for their YouTube vlogs, where they all wear matching white t-shirts and show their love for their big family.
But for a while, Cleopatra was absent when she moved to LA to live with her husband, John James Jose.
The couple have now separated and Cleopatra has returned to live with her family in Australia, where she presumably plans to raise her young child.
Sharing information on YouTube, the girl’s mother wrote: “Congratulations to our daughter Cleopatra for having a beautiful baby.
“We love you more than words can describe. You are a warrior woman who loves life, strong, brave, intelligent, confident, charming.
“To our new born baby. We are so lucky and delighted to have you in our Licciardo-Toivola family of 12.
“We have made big plans for your future, plans for you to prosper and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
In the second clip, uploaded this weekTaina and Cleopatra go shopping for blue and pink materials for her gender reveal party.
Ms. Taina’s mother said of her growing baby’s swelling: “She’s so small. Look how small she is”.
When it comes to learning parenting tips, Cleopatra will be in good hands.
Her mom most recently raised three kids under the age of two – and has 20 years from the oldest and youngest.
Commenting on the announcement, fans of the family said: “Congratulations! Cleopatra is going to be a great mom. She takes great care of her siblings. I’m so excited!”
A second wrote: “So happy your family has a new baby.. I’m so happy Cleopatra is with you, what a wonderful family!”
And a third exclaimed: “This baby is so lucky to be in such a loving family.
“Especially with Gigi and Grandpa being so involved. I’ve been following this channel since the beginning and I’ve come to love them so much!!!”
Another fan said: “I’m so excited for her! She’s such a beautiful young lady.
“She’s going to be a great mom and this baby will be loved by your wonderful family. That baby bump is so cute!”
