Parents Finally Welcome Baby Girl After Having Fourteen Boys in a Row
A couple in Michigan have finally welcomed a sweet baby girl after having fourteen (!!) boys in a row.
The Schwandt family of 16 are delighted to announce that baby Maggie Jayne was born safe and well, weighing 7 lbs., 8 oz.
Little Maggie joins big brothers Tyler, Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvan, Gabe, Wesley, Charlie, Luke, Tucker, Francisco, and Finley, who range in ages from 2 to 28 years old.
‘We are overjoyed and beyond excited to add Maggie Jayne to our family,’ father Jay, 45, said. ‘This year has been memorable in so many ways, for so many reasons, but Maggie is the greatest gift we could ever imagine.’
Mum Kateri, also 45, admitted that their life with such a big family is “Crazy. Chaotic. Noisy. Messy,” but added: “We enjoy it. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t have continued to have this many children.”
“My parents were finally blessed with the little girl they never thought they’d end up having,” oldest son Tyler Schwandt, 28, added. “I don’t even know if my mum owns any pink clothing — or anything!”
He also said he didn’t think his parents had settled on any girl names before the birth, having been so convinced that another boy was in their future, joking that poor Maggie Jayne may end up wearing blue boy’s clothes for a while.
Honestly, the odds of having fourteen boys in a row is a bet that even Sportsbet wouldn’t touch!
Congratulations to Jay, Kateri, Tyler, Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvan, Gabe, Wesley, Charlie, Luke, Tucker, Francisco, and Finley on the birth of your precious daughter and little sister! We wish you all the very best. And special good luck to Maggie Jayne, with all those big brothers, you’re going to need it!
