When Scott and Ashton Underdahl welcomed their baby girl, Aurelia Marie Ann on April 12, they were also saying goodbye to an old family streak.
The Underdahls have produced seven boys over four generations. The last girl that was born into their clan was Scott's great aunt Bernice in 1914. Now, little Aurelia has broken the 101-year-old tradition of boy births.
"I remember when we found out that it took a mental adjustment," said Ashton to CDA Press. "We had prepared for boys, so it was shocking when we found it was a girl."
The pair already has a 22-month-old son named Asher, but they couldn't contain themselves when it came to finding out the new baby's gender. They learned that they were having a daughter 16 weeks into the pregnancy.
The newborn weighed eight pounds and three ounces, and according to her dad, has the nose of her grandfather, Conrad Underdahl. Everybody is rejoicing about the new addition to the household, but it already seems like Aurelia is the favorite amongst everyone.
"She'll just be our little princess, our cream of the crop," said Ashton.
