Jay and Kateri Schwandt of Rockford, Mich., recently welcomed a 14th child into the family. They've all been boys.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A lot of people choose not to find out the sex of their baby beforehand because they want to be surprised. Same for the Schwandt family in Rockford, Mich. They were holding out for a girl, which would have been a shocker considering they already had 13 boys. The new baby was born Wednesday. And, surprise, it was a boy. Fourteen boys in one family. Zero girls. What are the odds? .02 percent, according to one genetics counselor. At least they'll have plenty of hand-me-downs. It's MORNING EDITION.
