Little Maggie Jayne is sure to be spoiled by her family.

The newborn’s parents, Kateri and Jay Schwandt, welcomed her into the world – after having 14 boys.

Kateri, 45, and Jay, 45, were delighted to have a daughter and they kept her sex a surprise until she was born.

But after 14 boys, they were sure they’d have another and hadn’t even chosen a name for a girl.

But after Kateri gave birth to the gorgeous little girl who weighed 7 lbs., 8 oz. and was 20 inches long, they decided on Maggie Jayne.

The Michigan couple met as teenagers at Gaylord High School and Gaylord St. Mary’s.

They married in 1993 and had their first three sons together before graduating from college.

Since then, they had 12 more children, with Maggie – the only girl – as their most recent.

The family is looking forward to having a new girl in the house but oldest son Tyler, 28, jokes there’s nothing in the abode that’s pink.

The other kids in the house include Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvan, Gabe, Wesley, Charlie, Luke, Tucker, Francisco, and Finley.

Dad-of-15 Jay told the Detroit Free Press: ‘We are overjoyed and beyond excited to add Maggie Jayne to our family. This year has been memorable in so many ways, for so many reasons, but Maggie is the greatest gift we could ever imagine.’

After so many boys – and so much testosterone in the house – Jay and Kateri weren’t completely prepared to have a little girl.

‘My parents were finally blessed with the little girl they never thought they’d end up having,’ oldest son Tyler added.

Tyler, who owns his own house and is planning to get married, added: ‘I don’t even know if my mom owns any pink clothing — or anything.’
