The Duggars, Kate and Octo-mom got nothing on this mom...

Did you know this woman holds the world record for having the most children?

The world record for having the most number of children officially recorded is 69 by the first of two wives of Feodor Vassilyev (1707-1782), a peasant from Shuya, 150 miles east of Moscow. In 27 confinements, she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets. The children were born between 1725-1765.

CAn you imagine having that many damn kids? Holy crap!

  • Yeah, I read this in "Guiness book of World Records." She probably didn't even want sex anymore and just did it because back than it was the wife's duty. I'm glad I was born when I was.

  • I wouldn't be able to keep up with that many. How the heck did she keep track of them and go places with them.

    I bet she had a hard time finding a babysitter.
