When Leo Zanger and Ruth Zanger welcomed a new grandson last month, the baby's birth was an especially significant occasion — the little one is the couple's 100th grandchild!
Technically, baby Jaxon is Leo and Ruth's 46th great-grandchild. They additionally have 53 grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild — totaling an impressive 100 grandchildren.

"We just love them all and they're all so precious," Leo, 79, said of the family's newest "little bundle."
Leo and Ruth — who live near Quincy, Ill. — have been married for 59 years and have 12 children, whose ages range from 31 to 58. When their youngest was born in 1984, he was already an uncle to 10 kids.
"When we get together, it's big. It's really big," the couple's oldest grandchild, Donna Lane, 39, told Today of her family. "There are a lot of people — a lot of kids — but that's what it's all about. We always have a really good time."
