A couple in western Michigan are awaiting the arrival of their 13th child, but the big question is, will this child break tradition? Jay and Kateri Schwandt have 12 sons, so will lucky number 13 be a girl?

As with all of their other children, Kateri and Jay will not find out the gender of the baby until it is born, but their money is on another boy.

The baby is due on May 9th, 2015, and the couple have said they will be shocked if they finally have a daughter, something proud dad Jay is hoping for!

Their eldest son is now 22, and their youngest was born in August last year. Kateri comes from a family of 14 kids and believes that having children is very special.

The photo shows the 12 brothers –  Tyler (21), Zach (17), Drew (16), Brandon (14), Tommy (11), Vinny (10), Calvin (8), Gabe (6), Wesley (5), Charlie (3), Luke (19 months) and Tucker (the youngest, in this picture only 2 days old!).

What do you guys think, will it be brother number 13? Or the first girl to break tradition?
