Jay Schwandt says they've chose to name him Finley Sheboygan Schwandt.

It's a boy, the 14th for this family.

For every baby born, the gender has been kept a surprise.

Surprisingly, after having 14 boys, Jay explained that even though it feels like Finley is their final child, he can't guarantee they won't be new parents again.

But after the spotlights fade and the headlines are buried, they insist they're a family just like any other.

Grand Rapids-area couple Jay and Kateri Schwandt welcomed the 14th boy to their brood Wednesday, five days before his expected birth date, weighing in at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, according to the Grand Rapids Press.

Jay Schwandt says there's "no chance" the couple will have another child, though he's made similar statements before. "Everything that we do is about family, it's centered around family".
