A Michigan couple with 13 sons has welcomed a 14th boy into the family. The Grand Rapids Press reports Jay and Kateri Schwandt's latest addition was born Wednesday evening, five days before the baby's expected due date. As with their last few children, the couple decided against learning the baby's sex before the birth. A genetics expert previously put the chance of having even 12 sons in a row at .02%. The Schwandts live in Rockford, north of Grand Rapids, and their eldest son is in his 20s. The new arrival weighs 8 pounds, 4 ounces and is 21 inches long, per the AP.
