Move over, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Jay and Kateri Schwandt of Michigan may “only” have 12 kids and counting … but all 12 of them are sons!
They aren’t finding out the sex of the 13th, either!
Jay and Kateri are expecting lucky 13 in May, and say they wouldn’t be surprised if when that day comes, they welcome yet another boy in the delivery room.
They don’t exactly know anything else.
“If we were to have a girl, I think we would go into shock,” mom of champions Kateri, 39, said to The Grand Rapids Press. “It would probably be disbelief.”
He or she will join Tyler, 22, Zach, 18, Drew, 17, Brandon, 15, Vinny, 11, Tommy, 12, Calvin, 9, Gabe, 7, Wesley, 6, Charlie, 4, Luke, 2, and Tucker, 14 months.
While both proud parents insist they just want another healthy tyke, Jay can’t help but gush at the possibility of having a daughter at long, long last.
“I’ve experienced all the boy stuff. As long as we are having all these children, it would be really neat to experience the other side,” Jay explained.
“The stuff that goes on in this house is all-boy … roughhousing and wrestling. If there was a little girl in there, I assume it would be a little different.”
On the flip side …
“A little girl would be neat to have in the house, but a little boy kind of takes the pressure off,” Kateri said. “We know what we are doing. Why change things up?”
She says she’s certainly not continuing to have kids to “try for a girl,” a question she no doubt gets all the time. For this mom, it’s just a part of life.
“I love being pregnant,” the matriarch added of the joys of carrying and raising kids. “I’ve spent half of my life being pregnant. It’s very neat and very special.”
These folks definitely agree …
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are still working on that 20th kid.
