Miss Winter, who lives in a one-bedroom flat in Luton, Bedfordshire, had her first child with ex-husband Wayne Redding at 19.
Their daughter, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was taken away in 1994 aged two after the couple were accused of neglect.
Two years later their next child was also taken away. Miss Winter then began an affair with Mr Housden, who had been a lodger in their home.
She divorced Mr Redding, a New Zealander who has since died, and went on to have another 11 children with Mr Housden, all of whom have been taken into care.
Four of them were found to have a rare and degenerative condition, which has a genetic link, after birth. One of those has since died
The couple have been told they cannot keep the children due to 'concerns about severe neglect, lack of parenting ability and the consequent risk to any child in their care'.
Miss Winters, who left school with no qualifications and worked as a factory packer until giving birth to her first child, receives £271 a month disability allowance. An accident left it difficult for her to walk.
Mr Housden, 36, is her registered carer and they receive £511.33 a month in income support, plus £300 a month for housing benefit and council tax on their one-bedroom flat.

Theresa Winters whose 13 children are in care vows to keep getting pregnant
A PREGNANT woman who has already had 13 children taken into care has vowed to keep on giving birth until she is allowed to keep one.
Theresa Winters has spent almost half of her life having babies, but has not been allowed to keep any of them beyond the age of two.
Even her own sister believes that she should be sterilized.
But Miss Winters, 36, a heavy smoker who was herself taken into care as a teenager, insisted it was time for a "second chance".
She accused social workers of failing to help her achieve her deepest wish of having a family with her second partner, Tony Housden.
She admitted that community workers had probably made the right decision in removing her first 13 children because of neglect, but said she had "calmed down" now.
Louise Walls, 37, accused her sister of having more children out of 'pure spite'.
The mother-of-three told the Daily Mirror: 'She should be sterilised. She's going to end up with 20 kids taken into care.
'It has to be stopped. I'm ashamed to be her sister.
'She's not worried about the babies - she's told me that. She said that every time they take one she will just have another and they can pay for it.
'She's used to them taking her children so it doesn't affect her. She is sick.'

Shouldn't some DNA strains be made extinct ? What's the point of allowing less than optimum creatures to breed more of themselves? Isn't it time we as a people decided to breed from the best, the way dog and cattle breeders do?

And stick the taxpayers with another bill for childcare while the creature is away at workcamp?
Mandatory birth control injections should be a requirement before anyone receives a public assistance check.
That leaves them an option that isnt forced.
If you want to be a parasite on the system, the system has an obligation to limit the amount of damage you can cause to the public wallet.
