A family in Idaho is tickled pink after they welcomed their first girl child in more than 100 years earlier this month.
Aurelia Underdahl became the first girl born in her dad Scottâ€™s family since 1914 when she arrived on April 12, the Coeur dâ€™Alene Press reported.
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.
â€œI wasnâ€™t mentally prepared for a girl,â€ she said.
The family knew they had a lot of men in their ranks, but didnâ€™t realize how far back the boy streak went until recently, KREM reported.
Scott Underdahlâ€™s father, Conrad, was doing some research into his family tree when he realized he wasnâ€™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 Aureliaâ€™s great-great-aunt, the Coeur dâ€™ Alene Press reported.
â€œMaybe it took more than 100 years to create perfection,â€ Conrad Underdahl told the newspaper. â€œSheâ€™s a cutie. Weâ€™ve been spoiling her a bit because itâ€™s just different finally holding a baby girl.â€
The Underdahls said they are excited to explore the world of having a girl in the family.
â€œEveryone has been hoping for a girl,â€ Scott Underdahl told the Coeur dâ€™ Alene Press. â€œI didnâ€™t know what an Underdahl girl looked like.â€
