The Most Prolific Mother Ever

Move over Michelle Duggar, ’cause Valentina Vassilyeva’s got you beat!

Move over Michelle Duggar, ’cause Valentina Vassilyeva’s got you beat by… FIFTY kids!

Valentina Vassilyeva (1707– 1782), a Russian peasant, gave birth to 69 children.

Let me say that again…. 69 children.

From 27 pregnancies between 1725 and 1765, she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets.

I can’t. I can’t even…

BONUS FACT: The longest known pregnancy lasted for 1 year and 10 days.
