Family brings 12th son home from the hospital

Several network morning news shows this week visited the Rockford home of the Schwandt family.

ROCKFORD, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Rockford family has received national attention for their size and gender. Several network morning news shows this week visited the Rockford home of the Schwandt family.

Why? Teri Schwandt recently delivered her twelfth son!

Ty, Charlie, Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tucker, Tommy, Gabe, Calvin, Vinny, Wes, and Luke range in age from 21 to just five days old.

"We did not start out planning this, we just kind of came upon it and kept going with it," explained mother Teri.

Mr. and Mrs. Schwandt married when they were 18 and started their family right away.

Mr. Schwandt says the older boys watch out for those younger than themselves and that's the secret to managing the household chaos.
