Mum-of-12 slammed for spending ‘£25k’ on Christmas presents for her kids including game consoles & iPhone 14s all round | The Sun
A MUM-OF-TWELVE has been slammed online for spending '£25k' on her children this Christmas.
Alicia Dougherty, from New York, and her husband, Josh, often share snippets of their family life on TikTok.
And Christmas was no exception as Alicia showed off the ginormous haul of Christmas gifts her children got this year.
In the video, the mum said: "Christmas haul for our twelve kids."
She then shared a clip of each child's sack of presents and stockings each personalised with their names.
Josh and Alicia Dougherty struggled with infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss for nine years and so decided to adopt from foster care.

The couple now have twelve children, Alex, 16, James, 15, Nivea, 14, Patrick, 13, Dayshawn, 12, Brie, 11, Zoey, 10, Dash, 8, twins Jason and Jordan, 7, Bodi-Blaze, 5, and Harlee-Quintin, 3.
Some of the younger children got hula hoops – but it was the high-end gadgets and game consoles that had people talking in the comments section.
As Alicia showed off the mountain of gifts, she revealed that every single child got a brand new iPhone 14 as a gift, including their youngest, who is just three years old.
As well as a top-of-the-range new phone, some of the children got new Mac laptops, iPads, Game consoles, and new games.

On top of that, most children got a brand new pair of designer trainers as well as clothes.
Each child's sack of presents was wrapped up in personalised wrapping paper featuring a picture of themselves and their name.
The video soon went viral with over one million views and people quickly took to the comments section to share their thoughts.
Many were shocked by the pricey haul and asked why a three-year-old needed a brand-new iPhone while others tried to work out what the total cost of the presents was.
One wrote: "Just curious, what does Harley need an iPhone 14 for?"
A second person commented: "No matter how much money you're making this seems like an irresponsible use of $30k (£25k)."
"I love this but is no one gonna talk abt how they got each kid a phone that’s like 12-15 grand for all those + the iPads and whatever else," penned a third.
Meanwhile, a fourth added: "Broke it down, over $41K total."
Another person claimed: "Why does a toddler have a better phone than me."
