Shoutout to Oprah for introducing a black family to this genre! Rozonno and Mia McGhee of Six Little McGhees had sextuplets in 2010, making them the first couple in Columbus, Ohio to pop out a half dozen babies at once.

To date, Eddie Murphy has fathered five daughters and three sons. But here’s where it gets messy: He had five of those kids with ex-wife Nicole, two with TWO former mistresses, and one with ex-girlfriend Mel B (that he initially denied).

Together, Brad and Angelina have six little balls of energy – three boys named Maddox, Pax and Knox and three girls named Zahara, Shiloh and Vivienne. But though they’re adorable as all heck, sources have been reporting for years that Brangelina’s brood is wild and out of control – once going so far as to throw food in a restaurant with NO punishment. Now you know this would never work in certain, i.e. our, families…

Flavor Flaaavvv! The 54-year old TV personality has fathered seven children thus far: Shaniq, Dazyna, Quanah, William, Jasmine, Kayla and Karma. And though I’d normally rule a man of his age out from having any more, you just never know these days – though he should be slowed down for a minute pending the results of his assault case.

Mel Gibson has one daughter and six sons with first wife Robyn Moore, and a daughter with Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva – that’s a grand total of eight children.

Altogether, Ginuwine and wife Solé have eight kids. She had two from a previous relationship, he had four, and since marrying they’ve had two. Quite the family.

Forty-three year old Diddy is a daddy to six children: Quincy, Justin, Christian, D’Lila, Jessie and Chance. Kim Porter mothered four of them, Diddy’s high school sweetheart Misa: one, and Sarah Chapman: one.

El Debarge of the R&B/soul family group Debarge has not one, not two, not ten… but twelve children! He had many of them with his three ex-wives, and the rest with two ex-girlfriends. Whew, that’s a lot of kids.


The Osmonds have always been known for having lots of children – Marie herself is one of nine siblings – so when it came to her own family, Marie naturally opted for larger rather than smaller. She has three biological children by two husbands, and five adopted children.

Lil Wayne may only have 4 children right now, but considering his Slore-ish sex life and baby mama-to-child ratio (4 baby mamas: 4 kids), chances are good that there will be many more kids in Weezy’s future.


Jon and Kate Gosselin introduced us to their family in 2007 with the premiere of Jon & Kate Plus 8. The subject of the reality TV show was of course their eight kids – consisting of a set of twins and a set of sextuplets.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting (formerly 18 Kids and Counting and 17 Kids and Counting), currently have just that – 19 kids. The Arkansas couple had their first child in 1988 and approximately one child every year and a half thereafter.

But just because they’ve borne a small army, doesn’t mean they’re done procreating. The couple has made it very clear that birth control is a no-no, and that only God will determine the number of children they have – which is a lot apparently.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have had four kids over five years. But now that Tori’s had a string of C-sections and a difficult last pregnancy, she’s admitted that she’s done birthing babies – though adoption is still a possibility.

The Bodyguard star Kevin Costner has fathered seven children between 1984 and 2010. He had three with his first wife, a fourth with a girlfriend and another three with his current wife Christine Baumgartner.


In 2009, Nadya Suleman – already a mother of six, gave birth to octuplets via invitro fertilization. Earning her the name we’ve all come to know and not particularly love: “Octomom.”
