A mother who gave birth to ten sons in a row was elated as she finally welcomed a baby girl with her partner.
She and her partner share ten sons named Campbell, 17, Harrison, 16, Corey, 14, Lachlan, 11, Brodie, nine, Brahn, eight, Hunter, six, Mack, five, Blake, three, and Rothagaidh, two.
Alexis Brett, 39, from the Scottish Highlands found out that she and her partner David, 44 are expecting their 11th child but they were sure it would be a boy.
They couldn’t wait till birth to find out, the couple decided to have a sex scan. They asked their 16-year-old son Harrison to open the result because the couple were too nervous to see it.
“I’d been expecting to hear we were having another boy,” Alexis says.
“But when I found out it was a girl, my face was a picture.”
”I was shocked, but delighted. Now she’s here with us, it’s a fantastic feeling,” she adds.
Alexis is Britain’s first mom to have 10 sons in a row and now their family is completed with baby girl Cameron who is loved by her brothers. The brothers from the age of two to seventeen take care of their sister and play with her.
”They’ve generally been much better behaved around her, trying to keep quiet in case they wake her up.
“They also want to help with holding and feeding her, it’s been great,” dad, David says.
The family of 13 lives in a five-bedroom detached house and they keep their house neat and tidy.
Alexis says: “It’s not easy with so many boys running around, but I like everything neat and tidy.
“I can’t stand mess.”
”We don’t tend to do hand-me-downs, there’s no point. Being boys, their clothes never seem to last.”
Alexis and David say that they are stopping having kids now and they had no plan of having a large family but now they do have one and happy with it.
”We’re definitely stopping now,” said Alexis.
”There’ll be no more. I said that last time, but this time I absolutely mean it. I love my family as it is now.”
”Of course, we do get comments about the number of children we have – especially when I was pregnant again,” she adds.
”All my sons are special to me, if another boy had been on the way it wouldn’t have bothered me. We’re asked a lot if we had so many children because we were hoping for that elusive girl.”
”I can honestly answer ‘no’. Cameron wasn’t planned, but I was happy all the same. Luckily all my pregnancies have had little or no drama.”
”I’d never planned to have a large family, but now I do, I love it.”
”I always joked I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with a girl… that’s all changed. We’re having a lot of fun buying pink things for the first time.”
