Nearly three decades after the birth of their first child, a US couple whose large family attracted attention by growing to include 14 sons have welcomed their first daughter.
Michigan’s Kateri Schwandt gave birth to Maggie Jayne on Thursday, who weighed in at 3.4 kg and entered a world filled with 14 older brothers.
He and his wife, both 45, Jay Schwandt said,“are overjoyed and beyond excited to add Maggie Jayne to our family.”
“This year has been memorable in so many ways, for so many reasons, but Maggie is the greatest gift we could ever imagine,” he told the Detroit Free Press following his daughter’s birth at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s Hospital in Grand Rapids.
As their family has grown, the Schwandts have been featured for years in local and national news.
The couple have a “14 Outdoorsmen” livestreaming programme that may need a name change now.
