Illinois Couple Welcomes Their 100th Grandchild


Holy grandkids, Batman!

A couple recently celebrated the birth of their 100th grandchild. Yes, that is not a typo. 100 grandkids.

Leo and Ruth Zanger of Quincy, Illinois have 53 grandchildren, 46 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. The birth of great-grandson Jaxton Leo on April 8 made the number 100.

Leo Zanger told their local paper, The Quincy Herald-Whig, that "the good Lord has just kept sending them." He says his family "could start our own town" and his wife Ruth mentioned "there's always room for one more." And you thought gathering your family for a reunion was stressful!


The 100 grandkids, along with aunts, uncles, parents and more rent out a Church hall for their big gatherings. Things do come up, but the family always makes time for each other, especially on "mandatory" holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Needless to say, Leo and Ruth are truly superhero grandparents!
