Mr Schwandt was happy that his wife and baby, who is yet to be named, had a safe delivery.

Kateri Schwandt has said she is used to large families, as one of 14 children herself.

As with their last few children, the couple decided against learning the baby’s sex before the birth.

The Schwandts live in Rockford, north of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and their eldest son is in his 20s.
