A mom of sixteen has said that she will keep having children until “we can’t have babies anymore” as they would simply “love more.”
The parents of Australia’s largest family, Jeni Bonell and her husband Ray, from Queensland, aren’t ready to stop growing their huge family just yet. As despite their already large brood of 9 sons and 7 daughters, aged between 6 and thirty-one, the couple have admitted that they would “love more kids.”
The family, who have a large following online, regularly share insights into their unusual life on Instagram and YouTube.

In their recent YouTube video, the couple revealed that they are opened to the idea of having more children, if they are able to.
Jeni and Ray filmed themselves answering questions from viewers while they were out running errands, when Ray revealed that they “would love more kids.”
“We would love more kids. It hasn’t quite happened yet, but we would love more,” he said.
While Jeni added: “We are very happy with what we’ve got, we are very open to having more. Eventually, age and that next season of life will prevent that, but there is always hope. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t, we’re happy either way.”
“We will keep having babies until we can’t have babies anymore.”
Jeni was also asked about her experience of pregnancy in the video where she revealed that she’s always enjoyed it and that it had been part of the reason for their large family.
And when talking about the size of their family, Jeni described it as being “fun.”
“There are a lot of sacrifices that come with having a family this size, but for us, it’s right. For a lot of other people it might not be,” she said. “But we put 100 percent into raising our kids and into our family life so for us it’s perfect.”
The YouTube video also saw the couple, who have been married for thirty-two years, discuss how they first met.
They explained that they were out dancing and a song came on that Jeni liked so, she propositioned her future husband to dance and from there, “the rest is history.”
