Adam and Eve were mythological. The most recent common female ancestor, trace through mitochondrial DNA, (we will call her "Eve") would have lived about 150 to 230 thousand years ago, in southeast Africa.

The most recent common male ancestor, traced through the Y chromosome, (we will call him "Adam") was between 60 and 140 thousand years ago. It is therefore highly unlikely Adam and Eve ever met.

Regardless of whether there was only one family or one small group of humans, the reason that there are vastly more people today is that the birth rate exceeded the death rate. When that happens, a population expands.
