“It’s A Boy Again”: A Family From Michigan Welcomed Their 14th Son This Week

Date April 20, 2018

The Schwandt couple from Rockford, Michigan, were already having 13 sons in their family and were hoping that 14th child would be a girl. But this week, they welcomed another baby boy!

Jay and Kateri Schwandt provided some details about their newborn child, telling he weights 8 pounds 4 ounces and is 21 inches long. The 14th, yet unnamed boy, landed the family in the national headlines.

After their 13th boy was born, Jay said:

We are crazy. I mean to each their own, you know what I mean. We have  a lot of friends that have you know one child or no children. You know, we get plenty of comments, you know out there online about you know how crazy we are and how unfair it is and everything. It’s not for everybody. We enjoy it. We love having 12, now 13 kids. It’s fun.

Jay can not be more proud, as he is now a happy father of 14 boys.


By the way, they didn’t know the gender of the child prior to birth, so it was a huge surprise. Moreover, during all previous times, they never knew whether it would be a girl or a boy.

The couple says:

That’s like opening Christmas presents on Thanksgiving.

Jay and Kateri decided to let their older sons choose the name of the newborn.

We've narrowed it down to just a couple. After 13 boys, we've really had to start getting creative.

Despite the fact it was already the 14th pregnancy, all family members were very excited, and their 13 sons couldn’t wait until they could say “Hi” to their new sibling.

Their oldest son is 25 years old, and the youngest after the newborn is only 2 years old.

It is such a big happiness to have a large family. It is worth mentioning that Kateri comes from a big family too, and she is one of 14 children.

We wish this wonderful family all the best!
