The Laughing Stork’s Fun Parenting Facts

The record for the most children birthed by a woman is held by Mrs. Vassilyev (first name unknown, presumably because the kids took it along with her will to live).  The Russian birthing machine, the wife of a peasant, gave birth to 69 children.  Yes, you read that correctly — 69 freakin’ kids.  She had 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets between 1725 and 1765, totaling 27 births. 67 of the 69 children born survived infancy.  The woman’s sanity, however, was not so lucky.

In summary:  Ouch.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
