In this day and age having a family with more than 5 kids is usually considered a large family, however this Brazilian couple already has 13 kids and they are still planning to have more. You might be asking yourself “why in the great blue yonder would they want that?” Simple, all their children are boys and they are still trying to conceive a girl.
Two years ago, in September of 2016, a handful of news sources brought their story to light. Luckily, if you were unable to catch this crazy news story back then we have your back with this retro throwback. According to the Mirror, at the time Ronaldo was the youngest son. His other brothers include: Rafael (2), Railson (3), Ramires (5), Riquelme (7), Rincon (9), Ramon (10), Ruan (12), Rivaldo (13), Rubens (14), Rauan (15), Reinan (17), and Robson (18).
Notice anything curious about their names? Not only do all their names start with the letter “R,” but keen footballers (soccer fans) among you will recognize that they’re all named after legends of the game. What a naming scheme!

Apparently the Brazilian couple Irineu Cruz annd Cucicleide Silva, agreed that Irineu would name all the boys and Cucileide would name all the girls. And for the past 20 years only Irineu has had the chance to name their offspring.
So yeah, that’s right; this couple is trying to conceive a child for the 14th time because Cucicleide wants to have the opportunity to name one of her kids. I mean you’d think that after the first five Irineu would have been like “fine you can name the next few,” but I guess a deal’s a deal with this Brazilian couple.
