If you thought the Octomom had it rough with eight kids, we should introduce you to Feodor Vassilyev. The Russian peasant was able to have a child with his wife at 18. But then he ended up having 22 sets of twins, 9 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets with two different wives. His first wife, who no one knows the name of sadly, gave birth to the most children with Feodor, having 69 children with her. Of those 69, a total of 67 survived infancy. He then had 18 more children with his second wife. He became a father to 87 children overall, with around 84 of those children still surviving into his mid-70s.
