Mom Finally Welcomes A Baby Girl After Having 10 Boys

One of most exciting things about welcoming a new baby to the family is finding out whether it will be a boy or girl.

For one couple who has welcomed 10 sons over the years, when it came time to find out the gender of their eleventh baby, they were truly shocked.

When parents learn that they will soon have a little one on the way, they can't help but wonder if their new addition will be a boy or girl.

In fact, Cameron has been a good influence on all 10 of her brothers.

"She's already having a good influence on the boys. They have 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," David said.

If you're wondering if the Bretts plan on having any more children, Alexis confirmed that Cameron will be their last.

“No more! I remember saying that last time, but this time I absolutely mean it. I love my family as it is now," she said.
