An Idaho family is celebrating the birth of the first girl in the family in over 100 years. Ashton and Scott Underdahl are the proud parents of Auerelia, an eight-pound, three-ounce girl, born on April 12.
The family has a long history of delivering boys but after 101-years, Auerelia broke that streak.
Auerelia’s mother knew there were a lot of boys on her husband’s side of the family.
But when her father-in-law started doing a little research, they were all surprised at just how long it had been since there was a baby girl.
“Just shock. It took several days for it to set in for him. He was just like … really? Really, are you sure?” Ashton told NBC.
“He kept thinking even in the delivery room, ‘what if they make a mistake and it’s a boy all along?’”
A girl had not been born into the Underdahl family since 1914.
Although the family got something they did not expect this year, they said they couldn’t be happier.
