North Carolina mom Cher Lair and her husband Stephen had given up on having a girl after having six sons, they told ABC 11.

"Initially, on baby three and four, I'm thinking, there'll be a girl at some point. They can't all be boys. But after four and five and six, you're kinda thinking, yeah they can," she said.

For their seventh child, the Lairs entrusted their friend Andrea Silvey with the sex before they found out. Silvey then baked a cake that would be either pink or blue inside for the big reveal. At first, Lair can't handle the pressure.

But then she cuts the cake, sees that it's pink inside, and totally freaks out.

Lair said she's thrilled to add a female to her house full of guys.

"We're a boy house for sure," she said. "I want to have that mommy-daughter thing, to take her to Cinderella, for pedicures and manicures, and shop for a prom dress. I've wanted that."

Her sons' reactions were mixed. Campbell Lair, 9, told ABC 11 he's excited to have a sister.

"I like my brothers, but I'm tired of all the dirt piles," he said.

But others weren't sold.

"I ran out the door," Houston Lair, 5, told ABC 11. "I'm sick of girls."

The family's baby girl is due in August.
