Arkansas mother Michelle Duggar is going on child No. 19. My reaction? It’s hard enough keeping up with just one. I’m in awe of parents who manage life with two kids. I can’t even wrap my mind around 19.

In search of some way to put that number in context, I started an Internet research journey that unearthed these gems:

– The youngest mother on record is a Peruvian girl who gave birth to a boy at the age of 5.

– The oldest mother on record gave birth to twin boys at age 66.

– The most babies born to one mother is unofficially reported as 69. Got that? Sixty-nine children. This one Russian woman was apparently preganant 27 times – and had 16 sets of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.

Suddenly, being pregnant with a 19th baby at age 42 seems like a piece of cake.
