The More, The Merrier: The Largest Hollywood Families
America has come a long way from the 'Baby Boom' of 1960. These days, most parents prefer to have fewer kids. A lot of the changes have to do with earning power and financial expectations. More parents seem to be concerned about providing adequately for fewer children, against having more children and compromising the standard of living.
Statistics show, however, that from 1960 to 2016, the average household consists of 2.53 people. Of course, those are just numbers talking. You cannot have 2.53 of a human being. In addition, studies show that the more educated women get, the less inclined they are to have more children.
On the average, most households in America consist of three people. Ideally, it is a father, a mother, and a child. But in many cases, the positions may be different. It is on record that there are more single parents in the US now than in the past 20 years.
However, some Americans still prefer large families with four children or more. Even celebrities are not excluded from these statistics. And these celebrities make the list of some of the largest Hollywood families.
