Age difference essential to having lots of babies

OK guys -- if you want to be like the Duggars, or that guy who's fathered 78 children, here's the key: get with a younger woman. I'm totally serious. Australian researchers have discovered that the optimum age difference between partners (if the goal...

90 year old dad wants more kids

Catherine Zeta-Jones: "two kids is enough"

Any time I'm flipping through the channels and find a show on the Duggar family of Arkansas, I just have to stop and watch. You may have heard of the Duggar family. They have 16 kids. They also have a series of shows about having babies, moving in an...

16 Children and Moving In

I'm happy with two kids but for some folks that's just not enough. If I had 16 kids... no, it could never happen -- my wife would have killed me by number six. We've covered the Duggars before, but now that number 16 is about to arrive they just need...
