Having kids is such a joy. Many of us wish to have a balanced set of boys and girls; however, it is up to mother nature to decide for us. For this mom, she finally gave birth to a daughter after having 10 sons.
Alexis Brett is from England. She and her husband have had 10 sons. When they were pregnant with their 11th child, Alexis was expecting to hear that she was having another son. She was completely in shock when she heard she was finally having a girl.
Now that their daughter is here, they are absolutely loving it. At her arrival, her 10 other sons were ages 2-17. Can you imagine having that many mouths to feed and take care of every single day?
Alexis thought her 10th son was her last; however, she knows for sure her daughter, Cameron, is definitely her last child.
They absolutely love their nontraditional family. While others think it is huge and crazy, they enjoy raising a large family.
Alexis shared, “I’m an only child myself and I’d never planned to have a large family, but now that I do, I love it. I always joked I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with a girl anyway but that’s all changed now, of course, and I have to admit that we’re having a lot of fun buying pink things for the first time.”
Alexis and her husband David have been married since 1998. They live in Dingwall, Ross-shire in a five-bedroom house with the entire family.
They have to go to the grocery store three times a week to have enough food to feed their family! In a given week, they would go through 16 loaves of bread, 100 packets of chips, and 50 pints of milk. That is just crazy!
Alexis and David never meant to have a big family; however, they have absolutely no regrets. They love their somewhat crazy life just the way it is. They especially love having a little pink in a house filled with boys as well.
Cameron sure is one lucky little girl to have 10 older brothers to protect her as she grows up!
For some, one child is enough, but for this mom, she definitely enjoys the wait after 10 sons to finally get a beautiful daughter.
