A mum and dad who have proudly created the perfect blended family by combining eight children from previous relationships and adding two more together, put their happiness down to accepting a life of “beautiful chaos.”

When the couple met, Tracee Simpson (32) already had six children. Justin Schaeffer (38) had two of his own. After they married, they added another two bundles of joy to their brood! The couple live in Arizona in the US.

Tracee told The Sun that she never expected to have such a big family, but is thrilled with the way things turned out.

In order to manage the “beautiful chaos” Tracee says she wakes up at 4:45 am to start doing chores and making breakfast. They also spend over R6,000 a week on food.
