Who said only children had it better? These large families want to prove that more really is merrier!
Some of these celebrities, like Donny and Marie Osmond came from big families themselves--can you believe there are seven Osmond children?!--so it's no surprise that Marie Osmond's children numbered seven strong at one time. (Tragically, Marie Osmond's son, Michael Bryan Blosil, died in 2010.) No wonder Marie Osmond is already a grandmother of three at only 57 years old!
But it's not just celebrities with lots of siblings who craved a full house. Stars like Angelina Jolie (one older brother) and Brad Pitt (the firstborn of three), who came from average sized families, built up their big families not only through pregnancies but also through adoption. Even though the couple is divorcing, their six kids are their priority.
Another factor that's not slowing down these Hollywood staples? Age! Becoming pregnant after 40 isn't such a big deal anymore. Some of these celebrity dads became parents again in their 40s, 50s, 60s or even 70s. Just ask Mick Jagger, the legendary Rolling Stones frontman. We just congratulated the English rocker on becoming a dad of 8 after he welcomed a son with girlfriend Melanie Hamrick.
See which moms and dads have surprisingly big broods, including one beloved singer with an astounding 12 children!
