A couple who were told by doctors that they’d never have children reveal they’ve been ‘blessed’ with ten kids – and say the secret to dealing with their ‘manic’ brood is taking one day at a time.
Emma and Spencer Gale, of Whitstable, Kent, live in a five-bedroom house with their ten children: Oliver, 20, Emily, 19, Charlie, 17, Daisy, 14, Freddie, 13, Teddy, eight, Sidney, five, Noah, three, Eli, two, and Isaac, one.
The family feature on tonight’s Me & My 10 Kids on 5Star at 9pm, which reveals how Emma gets up at 5am to look after the children and then works at her local Tesco in the evening to support her family.
Introducing their brood, Emma and Spencer admit they believed they’d never have a family of their own after medics suggested it would be highly unlikely, although the couple did not share the reason for this.

Speaking on the show, Spencer said: ‘We never planned to have a big family. It just naturally happened.’
But before getting married, the couple were warned by doctors that they would struggle to have children.
‘They told me and Spencer that we couldn’t have any children,’ Emma said, before Spencer added: ‘It was highly unlikely, wasn’t it.’
Emma continued: ‘It was just gutting at the time and you do feel a bit upset and disheartened.’
Yet miraculously, two days before their wedding, Emma felt unwell and Spencer took her to their local hospital, where the mother-of-ten was told she was three months pregnant.

Describing their home now, Spencer said: ‘Life in the house is manic from the moment they wake up to the moment they go to bed,’ before Emma added: ‘It’s constant.’
Emma, who works night shifts at her local Tesco store, added: ‘The way I’ve learned to deal with our family is to get up on that day and see what that day brings, go to bed and see what the next day brings. It’s as simple as that.’

But with many little children wondering around, trying to help, she admits that tasks can sometimes seem impossible.
‘Sometimes it’s really difficult, because they do like to help and that’s the problem,’ the working mother explains.

However, Emma and Spencer are thankfully helped by their two older children, Freddie and Daisy, who often look after the littlest members of the family.
‘We have to look after the little ones and we get really close,’ Daisy said, adding that she enjoyed helping her parents with the youngsters.
‘Daisy and Freddie help a hell of a lot,’ Emma admitted. ‘They are my extra eyes. Being in a big family does make you realise that you have to help each other and pull together as a team.’
Despite being up at 5am, Emma soon heads to work in the evening and it is up to Daisy to put the little ones to sleep.
‘Helping each other for them in a big family is a life skill,’ insisted Emma. ‘Daisy and Freddie do think it as a chore half the time but they do help and everyone pulls their weight.
