A PREGNANT mum-of-7 has hit back at cruel trolls who have told her to "stop breeding."
Mercedes Lynn, who is 30-years-old, explained how she had had seven kids via C-section and has another one planned for her eighth baby, who is due in a matter of days.
Taking to TikTok (@mercedeslynnnn7), she responded to a troll who wrote: "Stop breeding."
As each of her children appears in front of the camera one-by-one, she says: "For those that are new here, I've had 8 kids via 8 C-sections at ages: 17, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28.
"Baby number 8 due in 10 days at age of 30!"
Mercedes then goes on to explain each of her C-sections and says her first born was an emergency at 42 weeks, then baby number two through to five was planned at 39 weeks.
