This particular pair has a unique distinction: they are the first British couple to produce 10 sons in a row in consecutive order. They had a chance to break the record with their newest addition, but instead, this enormous family was blessed with a daughter 15 years after they had their first child.
Alexis Brett was 22 years old when she gave birth to her first child, a healthy and active boy.
Cameron was born on August 27, weighing 7 pounds and 2 ounces. Her parents, Alexis, who is now 39 years old, and David Brett, who lives in Dingwall, Ross-shire, Scotland, are overjoyed and delighted to be parents to Cameron.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled. My expression was priceless when I found out that we were having a girl rather than another male since I had been anticipating hearing that we were having another son. I was taken aback, but also quite happy, it’s a wonderful sensation to have her here with us now that she’s here.”
The couple decided early on that they did not wish to find out the gender of their newest addition, just as they had done with each of their other children. However, Alexis admitted that the two of them had let their curiosity get the best of them.
“When the results arrived in the mail, Harrison opened the envelope because I was shaking too much to do it myself. We could not believe our eyes when we saw that it was a female.”
Alexis said, “I myself am an only child, and I never intended to have a big family; yet, now that I have, I really like it.
I had always joked that I wouldn’t have an idea what to do with a girl anyhow, but that has all changed now, of course, and I have to say that we are having a lot of fun purchasing pink stuff for the first time.”
The pair has become adept at overcoming the obstacles presented by their very big family, which poses a number of difficulties on a daily basis.
