Couple With 12 Boys Welcomes Their 13th Son Into The World
It's lucky number 13 for the Schwandt family. Kateri and Jay Schwandt, a couple in Rockford, Michigan, just gave birth to their 13th son.
Kateri, 40, brought another bouncing baby boy into this world on Wednesday. The child is yet to be named and it weighs approximately 9 pounds.
The Schwandt boys now range in age from just a few days old to 22 years old.
While Jay and Kateri are overjoyed by the recent addition to their family, Jay had hoped to have a girl this time around. Prior to the birth, he said,
I've experienced all the boy stuff. As long as we are having all these children, it would be really neat to experience the other side.
Yet, Kateri didn't want to mess with a winning formula.
Why change things up? At this point, at this stage in the game, a little girl, we'd have to re-learn everything.
The Schwandts really defied the odds with the birth of their youngest child. Reportedly, the chances of having 13 consecutive sons are 1 in 8,000. So, Mazel Tov to the Schwandts!
