Super-sized celebrity families

The famous faces who found that three or four kids just aren't enough


Celebrities often do things on a grand scale, and that even applies to the size of their families. Here are just some of the famous faces with a lot more kids than the average.

Keeping up with the Kardashians matriarch Kris Jenner is a mum of six! The glamorous reality TV star had Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob with her late husband Robert Kardashian. She then wed Bruce Jenner - now Caitlyn Jenner - and together they had Kylie and Kendall.

She explains: "Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to have a big family. I used to sit when I was in high school and think, I can't wait to have six kids - I specifically said the number six. Now, when I see all of us and it's Christmas Eve and we're all cosy (1) sitting around the tree sipping (2) hot chocolate, I get so excited for my big happy family."
