POST FALLS, Idaho -
The Underdahls will not be lighting up an “It’s a boy” cigar for the family’s latest birth.
For the first time in more than 100 years a northern Idaho family has produced a female heir, according to the Coeur d’Alene Press.
Scott and Ashton Underdahl, of Post Falls, welcomed Aurelia Marie Ann April 12. The birth broke a streak that included seven boys over four generations.
"I remember when we found out that it took a mental adjustment," Ashton told the Coeur d’Alene Press. "We had prepared for boys, so it was shocking when we found it was a girl."
The streak was a long-standing topic of conversation for the family.
"Everyone has been hoping for a girl," Scott told the Coeur d’Alene Press. "I didn't know what an Underdahl girl looked like."
Scott’s great aunt Bernice was the last girl born in the family, in 1914.
