Leo and Ruth Zanger from Illinois are just one year shy of their 60th anniversary and have twelve children, 53 grand children, 46 great-grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

The pair welcomed their Jaxton Leo last month and said they felt blessed with their large family.

"The good Lord has just kept sending them," Leo told The Quincy Herald-Whig.

"We could start our own town."

Although the grandparents have more than eight dozen grandchildren happy granny Ruth said there is always space for another.
