The Girl With 7 Mums

The Girl With 7 Mums

ABC2  |  October 18, 2013

Some children may have seven siblings; some may even have seven dads. But only 10-year-old Ellie Sharp has seven mums. Ellie's dad Philip is a Messianic Jew and heads Britain's only openly polygamous family. Twelve years ago, God told him that he was a king and he should take seven wives. It sounds complicated, but the family's been together for over a decade.
