    Yeah she has another on the way now. When I saw them with the other family of pretty much the same size there was nothing to say except... wow.

    Edit: Lol at the tags

    According to BBC Sport this very morning, Patrice Evra (manchester united defender, for those not into soccerball ;)) Is one of 26 children.

    :eek::eek:holy **** - poor woman is all i have to say 18 children = 13.5 years being pregnant - nnnnnnnoooooooo way in hell would i ever ever do that no way.... gouge the eyes outta myself first...

    but agree its not unatural just stupid - how can you give equal time to the children and others not feel left out - christ the amount of washing, cleaning,dishes, feeding /financial implications of the brood....jesus no she is a better woman than me - i would only have one or two - there is no need for more when there is the pill, condoms etc etc you can have lots of sex and no worries bout pregnancies 18 times over christ no -

    Id be highly surprised if they hadnt received a strongly worded letter with a voucher for a vasectomy in it from David Attenborough.

    holy crap! how do they remember all their names? and how could they afford to have 17 kids,god wont pay the bills for them,how much childrens allowance would they rake in a month for 17 kids??

    dole rants??

    They're not on the dole, they worked up until they married, and own three or four properties that they rent out, they home school the kids and buy everything second hand. I've seen a few shows about them on the telly!

    The kids names are Jana, John, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn and the [at the time] un-named baby (born in December last year)

    The oldest son is now married

    (yeah I C&Ped that)

    Hope he doesn't intend following in his parent's footsteps - God help his poor wife if he does.

    It is on TLC in the US every week, I seen a clip a few days ago where the oldest son (now married) was with his wife checking on a pregnancy test, didn't take long. :)

    That would suggest he married again and presumably fathered more children? What's the record for fathering by one man?

    there's a woman in my street with 11 kids and she's preggers again now and considering none of the kids look even close to 16 yet i reckon she's still not finished.

    have to say though, in a 4 bedroom house it must look like a hostel in there.

    i have it on good authority that she doesn't lift a finger either, she has all the kids trained to do everything, which i guess is fair given that she's pretty much a full time baby factory!

    I'd like to see them try this in China!

    Jaysus, the dad's name is Jim Bob, that's hilarious. I didn't think anybody besides cartoon hillbillies was actually called Jim Bob.

    Anyways, fair fooks to them, I say. So long as the kids get enough attention and care , I don't see the problem. If they're happy that way, then leave 'em to it.

    i think it's dafe to say they've had a lot more than 'fair fooks', i'll bet there's a good heap of 20 year old lads and lasses that are still virgins cos those two have had a lot more than their fair share. ;)

    Wow

    I would never have 17 kids

    2 would do me

    How is this surprising? Irish Catholics have a worldwide reputation for having large family's


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,175 ✭✭✭chamlis


    Yeah this used to be on when I was in America last year. was on after "Jon & Kate plus 8"
    The missus made me watch them, honest.

    but I have to say, there was one episode where the duggers went to this "Creationist Museum". That disturbed me in a way I find very hard to describe.
    They actually had Adam and Eve mannequins petting baby Veliciraptors and other dinosaurs. There was obviously a LOT of money put into that place and seemed to be no shortage of visitors.
    I admit, if I was in the area I'd probably go have a look for the lulz, but it's wishful thinking that that is why the other visitors were there.

    A girl in my class came from a family of 19.

    We were in a fairly small class in first year at school and when it came to doing means and averages in maths; the teacher stupidly decided to use the classes family size as an example for doing averages.

    Turned out the average family size in our class was something like 10 in the end.

    My Grandma has 16 siblings, which makes up 17 as well. But then again this was back in the 1930's so it was pretty natural at the time. I can't believe a woman would gou through all that pain.
