ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia (AP) - A Romanian immigrant has given 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.

``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 live 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.


Hmmmm, ya know, I could make a really crude sexist joke here. But, perhaps I should not ( as I look over my sholder)..:roll:

Abbotsford is very close to where I live, (and the home of the famous Abbotsford Air Show).
This story has been on the local news a bit. I haven't followed it too closely, but I did read on another forum I spend too much time on (www.canadiangunnutz.com) that they do not have time to work anymore, so the rest of the country is paying for them.

Sounds like a nice retirement plan, don't save just have more kids than you can possibly afford and wait for a government bailout...that is kind of the trend for everything now, whether business or child rearing.
