The idea of the “nuclear family” is a thing of the past for many parents. These days, the greatest thing about families seems to be that they come in all shapes and sizes.
“I would love to have more kids,” Kelly Killoren Bensimon, known for her appearances on Real Housewives of New York City, said on PEOPLE’s Mom Talk. “I don’t know how that’s gonna be possible — I’m gonna have to [lie] down and not be able to move for nine months.
“But I would love to have as many kids as possible,” adds Killoren Bensimon, 48, who is already mom to two teenage daughters.

Single parent Killoren Bensimon notes that although motherhood isn’t easy and her work life is busy, the experience of having children makes it all worth it.
“I have a crazy schedule. Sometimes I’m filming at 5:00 in the morning, sometimes I don’t get home until 9:00 at night,” says Killoren Bensimon. “But that’s the way that I make money, and my kids have been really great about it.”
She adds, “We don’t have any super nannies at home — it’s just the three of us.”
Luckily for Killoren Bensimon, daughters Sea Louise and Thaddeus Ann have been “amazing” and “incredible” considering their mom’s unorthodox work schedule — and they’re open to more siblings.
“They’re always the ones who are like, ‘If you want to adopt, Mom, we can adopt,’ ” Killoren Bensimon shares. ” ‘If you want to have another baby, you can do that too.’
“My youngest … a month ago, she was like, ‘Mom, seriously, you have to start dating. You talk about having kids, but you have to have a man,’ ” she continues. “So we’ll see what happens.”
