Family of 16 welcomes 14th boy

For most, the idea of having 14 children - especially when they're all boys - may seem a bit overwhelming.

"It's kinda part of the buildup for them", Jay Schwandt said. WOOD-TV reports the boy weighs about 3.7kg and is 53cm long.

Jay and his wife told the "Today" show that Finley's unique middle name was inspired by a story Kateri's father told them before he died eight years ago about a Native American chief who was also a father of many boys.

In the family of the USA state of MI, in which the 13 sons, was born another boy.

The new baby was born Wednesday night; his name is Finely.

Whatever the odds, Jay Schwandt is simply happy for a safe delivery for mom and baby.

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

The couple are seen with their thirteen boys above in this Facebook photo.

As with their last few children, the couple from Rockford, north of Grand Rapids, didn't want to know the baby's sex ahead of time.

When baby number 14 arrived Wednesday evening, they learned that for the 14th consecutive time, "It's a boy".

It looks like the pair might not have a chance of having a girl in the future - as they confirmed they are done having babies after the fourteenth. "Every little kick, every moment felt special".
