ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia ? A Romanian immigrant gave 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 (3.5 kilograms).

"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 lives 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.

Wow... The stupidity behind that logic. Which era are they living in? The Middle Ages?

W..T...F.... And since I'm from the same province, I'm paying for all this. I say ship 'em all back to Romania if the dumb ###### won't keep her legs closed and they won't use a condom :angry: .

Wow! 18 pregnancies means 162 months (or 13.5 years) of having a child one after the other.

I bet when she goes to the gyno doctor she can do her own pap smear. :D

Meh, why even do a pap smear and send it to the lab - the doctor might as well just put his head inside with a microscope.

A couple in dire need of being told "you breed them, you feed them".
