According to a local monastery's report to the government in Moscow, between 1725 and 1765 Mrs. Vassilyev popped out 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets, over 27 separate labors. The total: 69 children.

You can only imagine how a present-day newspaper editor would react to such fecundity, especially given the tabloid clamor in recent years over octuplet mother Nadya "Octomom" Suleman, who has 14 children, or the Radford family in Britain, which has 16 kids – and a TV show.
