My son was interested in world record for large families and we came across this fact.

The record for most children born to a single couple belongs to the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev of Russia. In 27 pregnancies between 1725 and 1765 she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets for a grand total of 69 children.

Wow I can't even imagine, and it was before medical care really!!!!

Well it sure makes my family size seem small...lol

from what I read 64 of the 69 survived past infancy.

The father went on to remarry and had more children. I find the story almost unbelievable but I am finding multiple references to it. It is even in the Guinness book of world records.

I had heard that but also assumed many had passed. Amazing so many survived. And no I cannot even imagine.

I would be a crazy lady...white padded cell and all!

My best friend growing up, mom, had 22 living siblings. Her mom was the baby and there were 3-4 lost in infancy if I remember correctly. Their family get togathers when her mom goes home (from Ecuador) are massive.

^ Exactly they didn't have what we have so they didn't have to worry about so much stuff either! Not every one of those 69 kids needed a fricken Ipod lmao

I have a hard time believing that too, considering quadruplet births have stats of 1 in 571,787 pregnancies, and that's WITH fertility advances.
