Hawaii News Now: Family of 16 welcomes 14th boy

Hawaii News Now: Family of 16 welcomes 14th boy

The couple said previously they hoped they would deliver a girl this time around - but were excited to add another boy to the family. On Wednesday, Jay and Kateri Schwandt welcomed their 14th son into the world - yes, 14th - and dad said he couldn't be more proud. The boy weighs 8 pounds, 4 ounces and is 21 inches long.

The odds of a couple going on a 14-boy streak, the report said, are one in 16,384.

They've said this before - after baby boy Nos.

The Schwandts first made national headlines in 2013 when they welcomed son No. 12, Tucker Ray Schwandt, who was born on August 4 that year. Jay Schwandt said earlier this year that he would have loved to have a girl, but didn't think would be in the cards.

Finley Sheboygan is the 14th child and boy for the Schwandt family. "If ever we were going to use it, now is the time".

"Without any one of them it wouldn't feel right", mom Kateri Schwandt, said. She further noted that she's "feeling great" and that Finley's "arrival was ideal".

"I can't imagine not being like this, I can't imagine not having 14 children, as insane as it sounds", Jay exclaimed.

Boats tells me he's used to big families since she was 13 brothers and sisters.
