Boys are known to be a handful, but can you imagine having twelve?
Jay and Kateri Schwandt, of Rockford, Mich., know what it's actually like. They welcomed their 12th son, Tucker Ray, into the family on Sunday, despite their long-held hopes for a girl.
“But if we were going to have a girl, it would have happened by now,” Kateri joked to MLive.com. “You don’t have 12 boys waiting for that girl.”
Tucker has 11 big brothers -- the oldest is 21 -- after his parents spent years trying to have a daughter.
As strict Catholics, the Schwandts said they use the family planning method to space out the birth of their children, though they've been happy to have a large family.
“We figure God knows what he’s doing," Kateri said.
As "Today" notes, there's a 4,000 to 1 probability that any couple could have 12 boys in a row.
“Well, you have now got three entire golf foursomes," host Matt Lauer said. "You have a whole baseball team with three in the bull pen, which is great.”
