Ted Leeson, 91, from Grantham, Lincolnshire, has eight living children, 33 grandchildren, 61 great grandchildren and 11 great-great grandchildren. Most of the family still live in the county, with the youngest being three-month old Cotie. His great grandson Toby Fairbrother, 36, and his wife Zoe, 36, are now expecting their fifth child this week.
Mr Leeson said: "I'm quite happy with it. There's nothing wrong with having a big family, I don't think."
Daughter Paula Dickenson said: "He's always been there for us. "He's always looked after us - he's worked all his life and always provided for us, we've never gone without anything."
