“I would’ve loved to have had one more!” the 38-year-old California-based woman told The Post.

The Bible-believing devout said she has her tubes tied despite wanting to carry more kids of her age.

Being patient

She misses being pregnant and, despite having a hectic experience during pregnancy, wouldn't mind carrying another child.

“Not all my pregnancies were easy. I had six C-sections… but being pregnant gave me a spiritual elevation. I learned to be patient and to sit still with my body," Iris explained.

Iris co-parents the dozen of adorable babies with her longtime lover Cordell whom they met in 2005.

Cordell was working as an international dancer while Iris was a choreographer with children.
