‘It’s a girl!’: Family breaks gender-drought after 101 years of boys

For the first time in 101 years the Underdahl’s were able to cry “it’s a girl!” after only birthing boys since 1914.

If you thought your family was in a gender-drought you might count yourselves lucky once you hear about the Underdahl family.

For the first time in 101 years the Underdahl’s were able to cry “it’s a girl!” after only birthing boys since 1914.

Scott Underdahl and his wife Ashton, of Post Falls, Idaho, became parents to Aurelia Marie Ann on April 12 – breaking four generations of only boys.

Scott, who said he wasn’t even sure what an Underdahl girl might look like, seemed delighted he got a little daughter.

“I’m a little at a loss as to what to do – I grew up with three brothers and haven’t spent much time around girls,” Scott, 27, a manager for a lumber company told People magazine. “But my daughter has been a lot of fun so far. Everyone is excited to have a little girl in the family.” 

The last girl in the family was Scott’s great-aunt Bernice, born in 1914.
