Mum-of-13 who starred on TV’s Extraordinary Pregnancies found hanged after ‘personal difficulties’

A MUM-of-13 who starred on TV’s Extraordinary Pregnancies was found hanged after suffering “personal issues”.

Tragic Mandy Gardner was discovered in woodland close to her home in Worthing, West Sussex, on April 7.

The 43-year-old was last seen alive five days before with a coroner ruling her death as a suicide.

An inquest heard how Mandy had recently expressed thoughts of self-harm before her death.

She was laid to rest in Worthing on June 15 at Durrington Cemetery Chapel.

The mum appeared on TLC’s Extraordinary Pregnancies with her husband Nathan in 2016.

At the time, the pair had 11 children and were preparing for baby number 12.

Mandy revealed how the more kids they have, the more the want – with the mum giving birth to her 13th child two years ago.

She said: “There are times when it can be absolute bedlam; they’ll be dogs running around, kids chasing the dogs, adults chasing the kids that are chasing the dogs!”

“Not all [of my] pregnancies were planned – 12 is us being careful – you know, each and every one has been a welcomed addition.”

“Crazy is normal in this house. Would I trade it in for a quiet life – no.”

Mandy’s Instagram was dedicated to her large brood, with her bio reading: “Love my 13 kids!!my dogs oh and my hubby xx #mumof13 #mummyof13.”

She was last seen alive on April 2

She had also posted adorable snaps with her children.

Speaking about her kids on the TV show, she said: “Am I addicted to having babies? Yeah, I think there’s an element to it definitely.

“But I hope to stop at 12. Famous last words – the last seven have all been the ‘last’!”
