Alexandru and Livia Ionce of British Colombia welcomed their 18th child last week. They now have 10 girls and 8 boys:
23 years old
23 months old
6 days old
The parents, originally from Romania, immigrated to Canada in 1990. They’ve been married 24 years.
I think they chose some great names for their kids. I do wonder, though, if things ever got confusing for Alexandru (father), Alexandra (child #2) and Alex (child #6).
