Winny Stokes, 90, welcomes her 100th grandchild

While the rest of us may just have a family tree, this British grandmother must have a whole orchard, considering she just welcomed her 100th grandchild.

90-year-old Winny Stokes from Gloucester had 14 kids with her late husband, Ken.

She remembers a time when it felt like she was bouncing back and forth from her home to the hospital to give birth. The kids shared bunk beds and hand-me-downs, switched off chores, while family trips required a 52-seater coach. 

"Growing up it was chaos and happy. Never a dull moment," explained her daughter Tracey, 54. 

“Ken was ever so good you know getting the washing up together and I would be downstairs in the kitchen with the children peeling the potatoes for the dinner," Winny said, according to the Mirror. Holidays and Christmas were always a fun production, but there were too many of them to go on vacation together. 

“There were too many of us to take on holiday though so we used to go on days trips to Barry Island and that," she said.

Winny's kids eventually went on to have broods of their own, 34 in fact.

Eventually, her family grew even more with 66 great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren too, adding up to a total of 100 with baby Hunter! Winny was surprised as anyone, exclaiming, “I just couldn’t believe it when I was told I had 100 grandchildren.”

Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

All my fellow mommies that deal with MS or anything that causes them to have to make choices they didn’t necessarily want to.. this is for you. I’m having to stop breastfeeding soon so I can get back on meds. The truth is, the toll of two kids and a newborn lifestyle is not the easiest on me.. and I need some help. What sucks is that I live with a disease that makes decisions for me a lot , and with breastfeeding I took SUCH pride that I was able to do something really awesome with this body that I am constantly at war with. This little guys tummy is struggling with the formula, and I KNOW we will both be fine, but I’m emotionally having to deal with the guilt and sadness that is coming along with weaning us both off this magical time. Any advice from my fellow mommies on how this can be any easier ? Xxxxx
