After becoming the first mum in Britain to have 10 boys in a row, Alexis Brett had resigned herself to life in an all-male household.
But now the 39-year-old has a whole new a-gender… she has just given birth to her 11th child – a baby girl.
Cradling her new arrival last night, the proud mum said: “We’re over the moon.
“I’d been expecting to hear we were having another boy. But when I found out it was a girl, my face was a picture.
“I was shocked, but delighted. Now she’s here with us, it’s a fantastic feeling.”
And daughter Cameron has already had a remarkable effect on her brothers, who range in age from two to 17.
Dad David, 44, a train driver, said: “They’ve generally been much better behaved around her, trying to keep quiet in case they wake her up.
“They also want to help with holding and feeding her – it’s been great.”
The couple insist Cameron marks the completion of their family, which also includes Campbell, 17, Harrison, 16, Corey, 14, Lachlan, 11, Brodie, nine, Brahn, eight, Hunter, six, Mack, five, Blake, three, and Rothagaidh, two.
“We’re definitely stopping now,’” laughs Alexis. “There’ll be no more. I said that last time, but this time I absolutely mean it. I love my family as it is now.
“Of course, we do get comments about the number of children we have – especially when I was pregnant again.
“But it doesn’t bother me what people think, we’re well used to it. Some people think we must be on benefits, but we’re not. David has a good job, which means we don’t even qualify for full child benefit.”
