ROCKFORD, Mich. — It’s a boy!

Jay Schwandt confirmed to FOX 17 that his wife Kateri gave birth to their 13th son Wednesday morning.   The baby was born healthy at approximately 9:06 a.m., he said.

Jay and Kateri have not yet decided on a name for the boy.

The Rockford couple announced last October that they were expecting their 13th child.

“We are crazy. I mean to each their own, you know what I mean. We have  a lot of friends that have you know one child or no children. You know, we get plenty of comments, you know out there online about you know how crazy we are and how unfair it is and everything. It’s not for everybody. We enjoy it. We love having 12, now 13 kids. It’s fun,” said Jay Schwant.

The Schwandts made national headlines in August 2013 when Kateri gave birth to their 12th son.   Their oldest son is 22.
