ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia — A Romanian immigrant gave birth to her 18th child in British Columbia, making her the province’s most prolific mother in 20 years.
Proud dad Alexandru Ionce said Saturday that his 44-year-old wife, Livia, gave birth on Tuesday. Their daughter Abigail weighed in at seven pounds, 12 ounces (3.5 kilograms).
“We never planned how many children to have. We just let God guide our lives, you know, because we strongly believe life comes from God and that’s the reason we did not stop the life,” said Alexandru Ionce.
The couple immigrated to Canada from Romania in 1990 and now lives in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Their 17 other children range in age from 20 months to 23 years old.
Ionce said he did not know if the couple would have more children. The family now has 10 girls and eight boys.
“We would have liked a boy to be even,” he said. “We thank God all of them are healthy and happy.”
Ionce said the family has received calls from Germany, Romania and England, as well as from media outlets across Canada.

Gee thanks morons. Thanks for over-populating the world even more than it is with 18 kids that will all breed exponentially, and many of them being idiots like you two will have as many kids as “god wants them to have.”
First of all, this idiot’s wife looks like she’s about 65, not 45. Gee I wonder why? Could it be because she’s been used as a baby bag repeatedly for years on end? Could it be pre-mature aging from all the physical, mental and emotional stresses of having all those kids? Could it be because she’s married to an idiot that believes that god gives life, yet it didn’t give us birth control so we could procreate responsibly?
Then there’s the increased costs, loss of resources, loss of open space to house these people, increased school populations in already overcrowded schools, etc…
How much do you wanna bet these people are getting some kind of government assistance? If they’re not, then the kids are growing up without much of anything, including food apparently, because unless these immigrants are hella rich, there’s no way they could be supporting 18 kids comfortably.
What about when they want to go to college? Oh wait, I guess we don’t need that. It might remove some of the ignorance and actually make them responsible citizens of the world. Oh heaven forbid!
There’s an American couple who had like 16 kids that I slammed hard a couple of years ago, and several idiots took offense to my slamming them for having so many kids. Well frankly, I’m sick of people pumping out huge numbers of kids and making everything more expensive for those of us who don’t have any. A huge chunk of my property taxes goes to school stuff. Well why not make my tax smaller since I don’t have kids, and charge people like this PER CHILD on their taxes since they’re the ones using the system. Then someday if we ever do have ONE child, we’d pay a bit more on our taxes too. It’s the only fair way to do it.
Anyway, I’m sure people will slam me for this. I honestly don’t care. This crap was just irresponsible and ignorant. If you wanna have a few kids, fine, but EIGHTEEN??? People get in trouble for hording pets. Why don’t they get in trouble for hording kids as well? Idiots.
