Couple with 14 sons welcomes 1st daughter
LAKEVIEW, Michigan (AP) — A Michigan couple whose large family attracted attention by growing to include 14 sons has welcomed their first daughter.
Kateri Schwandt gave birth on Nov. 5 to Maggie Jayne, who entered a world filled with 14 older brothers.
Jay Schwandt said he and his wife, both 45, "are overjoyed and beyond excited to add Maggie Jayne to our family."
Their oldest child, Tyler Schwandt, 28, said his parents thought they would never have a daughter after 14 sons.
The Schwandts wed in 1993, before they went to college, and before they graduated the couple had three sons.
