The Most Prolific Mother Ever

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.
