A family is celebrating the first birth of a baby girl in their lineage for 101 years.
The Underdahl family have not the gift of a female child for more than a century – and the new parents to little Auerelia are stunned with her arrival.
Ashton Underdahl and her husband Scott welcomed their new baby on April 12 in Post Falls, Idaho, USA, – the family’s first since 1914.
Auerelia comes as a little sister to almost-two-year-old Archer.
“I wasn’t mentally prepared for a girl,” Ashton said.
The proud mum and her newborn
Although the family’s male history was clear, they had no idea how long it had been since they’d heard the pitter patter of female feet until Ashton’s father-in-law dug a little deeper – and realised the lengthy wait.
“Everything was just sort of rooting for a girl,” the new mum added.
Now she’s part of the Underdahls, though, Auerelia is bound to get the princess treatment.
“They are just sweet. Girls are sweet,” Mum proudly added.
