A Michigan couple with 12 sons already have kept the all-male streak alive with the birth of boy No. 13.

Jay Schwandt tells The Associated Press his wife Kateri gave birth Wednesday, four days after her due date.

The couple had said they were sticking to the tradition of not knowing the baby’s sex ahead of time.

The 40-year-old father confirmed the birth in a text message to The Associated Press, saying the family will release details Thursday on ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America.” He also confirmed a post on Facebook saying he and his wife now “need to choose a name.”

The Schwandts live in Rockford, north of Grand Rapids.

Forty-year-old Kateri Schwandt says she has a lot of experience with large families, as one of 14 children herself.
