Kateri Schwand is already a mother to 13 sons but with baby number 14 on the way she may finally get a shot at having a little girl. She will wait until the birth in April to know for certain because the baby's sex is being kept a secret.

And while she and her husband, Jay Schwandt, said they would like to have a daughter, it is not something the Michigan couple are too concerned about.

"I would love to have a girl, but I just don't think it's in the cards," Jay Schwandt told WOOD-TV.

Kateri Schwand, who comes from a large family of 14, had her first child 25 years ago and her youngest is now 2 years old, Fox News noted.

The couple thought that after baby number 13 came along they would not have any more children but they are ecstatic to welcome their 14th baby into the world.

However, Jay Schwandt said that after the birth they were going to close up shop.

"I'm thinking that this is it. It just feels like this is going to be it, and we're going to enjoy every second of it," he said.

Logistically, a large family is not something that deters them much.

"If you have three, it's the same as having 10 at this point, if you ask me," Kateri Schwand said per Fox News.

"It's just more chaos, more noise. It's nothing we're not used to at this point."

So what are the odds of the couple having a daughter?

Fox News noted that the chance of having a 14th son is 1 in 16,384, according to data gathered by Wolframalpha.

Professor Louise Kenny from Cork University Maternity Hospital Perinatal Medicine noted that there are more boys than girls born worldwide, according to the Irish Examiner.

"If left to nature there will be about 105 boys born for every 100 girls," Kenny said. "At every conception there is approximately a 50:50 chance of conceiving a child of either sex."
