BananaStock/Thinkstock(GRAND PRAIRIE, Alberta) — Just in time for Christmas, Viktor and Aneta Urich of Grande Prairie, Alberta, welcomed their 100th grandchild, the Daily Herald-Tribune reported.

The Urichs, who are in their early 60s, have 16 children. Their eldest son, Heinrich — father of newborn Henry — has nine kids younger than 12.

“We get along fine,” Heinrich Urich told the Herald-Tribune. ”It’s not boring. There’s always something interesting going on.”

The Urichs aren’t the first to hit the 100-grandkid milestone. Bai Ulan, a widow from the Philippines, was recently photographed with some of her 107 grandchildren, 138 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.

The average U.S. family size is 3.19, according to 2009 Census estimates.
