Gwenny Blanckaert and Marino Vaneenoo, aged 39, are looking forward to the arrival of a new addition to their family in April. “It will be a boy” says Gwenny “and just like all its siblings its name will be a combination of the letters: A, E, L and X. The couple’s eldest is called Alex. He has siblings called Axel, Xela, Lexa, Xael, Xeal, Exla, Leax, Xale, Elax and Axle.
“We’ve already found a name for the new baby. There are several combinations left, but some are impossible to pronounce. Still, we found one.”
Many people may think a family of this size is hard to manage, but Gwenny doesn’t see the problem: “People always think of a worst-case scenario, but in real life it’s quite easy to manage.”
