I know a lot of moms and dads who try for the boy or girl they always wanted.  A Michigan couple whose large family attracted attention by growing to include 14 sons has welcomed their first daughter!

Kateri Schwandt gave birth Thursday to her daughter Maggie Jayne.

Jay Schwandt said he and his wife, both 45, “are overjoyed and beyond excited to add Maggie Jayne to our family.”

The Schwandts have been featured for years in local and national news as their family has grown. The couple has a live streaming program called “14 Outdoorsmen” that may now need a name change.

Their oldest child, 28-year-old Tyler Schwandt, said his parents thought they would never have a daughter after 14 sons. He said there’s likely nothing pink in the family’s home in the rural community of Lakeview, about 30 miles northeast of Grand Rapids.
