A Michigan couple has finally welcomed their baby girl, Maggie Jayne, after fourteen sons!
Every family member is equally essential, and the birth of each child is cause for celebration. However, we feel one Michigan family had even more reason to rejoice with the arrival of a healthy new baby girl, as she is the family’s sole female after nearly three decades and fourteen males!
Maggie Jayne was born weighing 7 pounds, 8 ounces and was named after both of her parents: Maggie is a version of her mother’s middle name, Margaret, and Jayne is a derivation of her father’s name.
The couple’s love affair began while they were freshmen at Gaylord High School and Gaylord St. Mary’s in college. They formed a family in 1993, and their first three sons were born before they finished college.
The ecstatic father exclaimed:
“We are ecstatic and happy to welcome Maggie Jayne into our family. Maggie is the greatest present we could ever dream.” This year has been noteworthy in so many ways, for so many reasons.
After producing 14 males, none of them anticipated the infant to be a girl. Tyler, Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvan, Gabe, Wesley, Charlie, Luke, Tucker, Francisco, and Finley, the baby’s siblings, were all ecstatic to meet their girl sibling.
Whenever a new sibling was born throughout the years, the family made headlines, and the reports were mostly on the baby’s gender.
It’s past time for them to rename their own live-streaming TV show, “14 Outdoorsmen”!
Tyler, the oldest of the three, is engaged and lives on his own. He admits that the whole incident must have surprised the family:
“I’m not sure if my mother owns any pink apparel at all.”
He also quipped that his brothers would need a lot of time to acclimate to having a lady in the family, including remembering to put down the toilet seat!
The father of the fifteen children earlier stated that he and his boys never desire to know the gender of the baby before it is born.
Nonetheless, he is confident now:
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we’re done having kids.” However, I was reminded that I said the same thing after Tucker (who is now four years old). And then there was Francisco. “It simply feels like we’re done,” says the narrator.
However, the happy mother just adores her home overflowing with children, saying that they “wouldn’t have continued to have this many children” if they didn’t appreciate their “full-house” lifestyle.
