(Newser) – And you thought Angelina Jolie had a lot of kids. An Arkansas mom has just given birth to her 18th. The baby, Jordyn-Grace Makiya, joins a crowd of sibs with names that start with the letter J and star in the TLC series 17 Kids & Counting. The spree began when the Baptist couple, married as teens, ditched their birth control pills. "What really works for me is swaddling a baby and snuggling up," the mom told People. "This time goes by so quickly."
