AN AMERICAN MAN whose 13th son was just born says he’s convinced that “medically, it’s just not possible” for him and his wife to produce a daughter.

He also says it’s proving a challenge to agree on a name for their newborn.

40-year-old Jay Schwandt tells The Grand Rapids Press that the boy born on Wednesday is the second he and his wife, Kateri, have had who arrived with a full head of hair.

He told the paper about the birth:

I was thinking, ‘If this is a girl, I don’t know what my reaction is going to be.

Remarkably, the Michigan couple say they stuck to their tradition of not knowing the baby’s sex ahead of time.

The baby and his 40-year-old mother are doing well at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s Hospital in Grand Rapids.

The boy is 22 inches and weighs 8 pounds, 9 ounces.
