Two grandparents

They and the two younger couples equal six parents.

The two younger couples, their combined seven children and brother Ricardo equal 12 children.

The two younger couples and Ricardo are five cousins.  The younger seven are cousins for a total of twelve cousins.

The younger couples are 3+2 sibilings, children are 4+3 siblings for a total of twelve siblings.

2+6+12+12+12=44 relationships made by 16 people.
