Kateri and Jay Schwandt live in Rockford, USA. They were very young when they got married and had their first son, Tyler. Then, another 13 boys were born.
And here is a fantastic event: the 45-year-old parents gave birth to their fifteenth child. And much to the Schwandts’ delight, it was a girl they named Maggie Jayne.
Each time, when Kateri gave birth to a child, we wrote articles in the local newspapers and invited the Schwandts to participate in the broadcasts.
In 1914, before the thirteenth boy, Francisco, was born, they were guests on the Today show where the host uttered, “Oh my God, a couple with 12 sons still expecting a boy!” Will they finally have a daughter?
And each time when a boy was born, the media announced that they were expecting a girl.
The family had already adapted to the presence of the boys. Their eldest Tyler, who was 28 years old, was already engaged and bought a house not far from his father’s house.
“When we found out we were having a sister, we didn’t understand anything, it was something unusual for us,” Tyler said.
And, in 2014, the boys’ mother told Mlive: “If we had a girl, I think we would be amazed. »
Jay always dreamed of a girl. He said that a little girl could change the atmosphere of their male household by making it more peaceful and free of fights.
Truly, the birth of Maggie Jayne brought happiness and sweetness to their home. According to the parents, she will be the most pampered and protected child.
