This Family Just Broke Their 100-Plus-Year Streak Of Having Only Boy Children

She will never have to deal with hand-me-downs.

Scott and his wife Ashton are already parents to Asher, who is almost 2. Ashton Underdahl told KREM that she had figured she would give birth to another boy like her first child.

"I wasn't mentally prepared for a girl," she said.


Scott Underdahl's father, Conrad, was doing some research into his family tree when he realized he wasn't finding any female children, KREM reported.

Conrad Underdahl, himself the father of four boys, went all the way back to 1914 before he found a girl child. The woman was named Bernice and is Aurelia's great-great-aunt, the Coeur d' Alene Press reported.

"Maybe it took more than 100 years to create perfection," Conrad Underdahl told the newspaper. "She's a cutie. We've been spoiling her a bit because it's just different finally holding a baby girl."

"Everyone has been hoping for a girl," Scott Underdahl told the Coeur d' Alene Press. "I didn't know what an Underdahl girl looked like."
