There will be no shortage of hand-me-downs for this MI kid.

The well-known Kent County couple with 13 sons has welcomed another baby into the family and - you guessed it - it's another son.

Grand Rapids-area couple Jay and Kateri Schwandt welcomed the 14th boy to their brood Wednesday, five days before his expected birth date, weighing in at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, according to the Grand Rapids Press. WOOD-TV reports the boy weighs about 3.7kg and is 53cm long. His name wasn't immediately announced.

Kateri Schwandt has said she's used to large families, as she is one of 14 children herself.


The couple's eldest son is in his 20s.

A genetics counselor earlier - when they were expecting their 13th child - calculated the chance of giving birth to 12 sons in a row at.02 percent.

Maybe after baby #3, #6, or #13, the Schwandt family of Rockford thought that maybe a little girl would be born into their family.
