Kateri and Jay Schwandt, both 45, have a big family – they are parents to 14 boys. And after nearly three decades of the birth of their first boy, they have finally become parents to a baby girl!
Married in 1993, the Schwandts are parents to 14 boys – Tyler, Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvan, Gabe, Wesley, Charlie, Luke, Tucker, Francisco and Finley. The couple has attracted the attention of the local and national media, especially with regards to the gender of their newborns. They even have their own livestreaming TV show called “14 Outdoorsmen,” in which the family involves in a host of outdoor activities in their 200-acre farm in western Michigan.
After a long wait, in early November this year, however, Kateri gave birth to Maggie Jayne, who weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces.
“This year has been memorable in so many ways, for so many reasons, but Maggie is the greatest gift we could ever imagine,” Jay told the Detroit Free Press following his daughter’s birth at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s Hospital in Grand Rapids.
Their eldest child, Tyler Schwandt, who is 28, said that his parents thought they would never have a daughter after 14 sons.
“I don’t even know if my mom owns any pink clothing — or anything,” said Tyler, who is engaged to be married.
Pictures of the entire family with the newest addition went viral on social media, and we are not surprised! The family looks adorable with the tiny munchkin!
