She has now told her 225,000 followers on TikTok that when she was 18, she was done having children.
“I got pregnant with Tessa when I was 15. I was 16 when she was born,” the Canadian said in a video that has now gone viral.
“Then I got pregnant with TJ when I was 17. And I was still 17 when he was born.
“I didn’t have any children before I turned 18.”

After learning she was pregnant with her firstborn, Tessa, which came as a surprise, Fertuck dropped out of school.
“I was still planning on finishing high school until I realized I didn’t need a degree to pursue my dream career,” she said in another video.
The couple then decided to try their second when Fertuck was only 17 years old.
“We wanted our kids to be the same age,” she said.
“Regardless of our age, our family began the second our first (child) was born.”
She said they are financially, physically and mentally ready for their second child.
The couple are unlikely to have any more children as Jayden, who is 22, had a vasectomy.

“When our youngest was three months old, dad had a vasectomy,” Fertuck said, adding the hashtag “#nomorebabies.”
The couple own their own home where they are raising their two toddlers, Tessa, who is now three and a half, and TJ, who is two.
In addition, the mother completes the “online school” for interior design.

“Being a new mom comes with a lot of challenges, but it doesn’t stop your life,” she said.
Her videos have received millions of views and thousands of comments with mixed reactions.
“You’re going to have amazing 30s,” one person wrote.
“I wish I had started much younger than when I became a father. Don’t get me wrong, I love my daughters but I’m getting too old to keep up with them,” confessed another.

“Just wait girl, you’ve been robbed of your teenage years. Hold on!” a third commented.
While a fourth added: “And by 30 you can be a gramma (grandmother)!”
But the mother didn’t let her negative comments hold her back.
“And what if it’s me? I don’t see anything wrong with potentially spending more time with my grandkids,” she replied.
