An American couple Jay and Kateri Schwandt are currently in celebratory moods after welcoming their first-ever daughter about 30 years after the birth of their first child.
The couple who have 14 sons welcomed their first daughter on Thursday, November 5, TUKO.co.ke has learned.
According to Sky News, the family which lives on a 200-acre farm in Michigan was very excited upon the welcoming of the daughter, named Maggie Jayne.
''We are overjoyed and beyond excited to add Maggie Jayne to our family" Jay Schwandt told Detroit Free Press.
"This year has been memorable in so many ways, for so many reasons, but Maggie is the greatest gift we could ever imagine." the excited dad added.
TUKO.co.ke has learned Kateri Schwandt gave birth to Maggie at the Mercy Health Saint Mary's Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The couple's oldest child, Tyler Schwandt, 28, said Maggies coming was a blessing because his parents thought they would never have a daughter after 14 sons.
According to Tyler, they all got used to living in a family home with no pink colours on anything for many years.
Tyler, who is engaged and recently bought a home 20 minutes away from his parents' farm, said Maggie was like a breath of fresh air.
"I don't even know if my mom owns any pink clothing - or anything." Tyler said.
The welcoming of Maggie now means the family has to find a new name for their online show dubbed 14 Outdoorsmen, Sky News reported.
It should be noted the Schwandts have been featured in the local and national news for years thanks to their online show.
Jay and his wife Kateri Schwandt started dating after meeting as freshmen at Gaylord High School and Gaylord St Mary's, respectively.
Their romance blossomed and they finally wedded in 1993 before attending Ferris State University.
The couple had three sons during their time at university.
Fortunately, both cleared school and earned advanced degrees, even as their family grew.
