The two reportedly have been trying to conceive a daughter for 22 years. Their newest child, Tucker, is their 12th son.
Though they were rooting for a girl, they are happy to welcome their healthy new boy into their home, reported Fox 5.
“We were getting ready to leave the hospital and I said, ‘Twelve. Twelve kids. That’s crazy,'" Jay Schwandt said.
Kateri Schwandt gave birth to their eldest son, Ty, while the couple was still in college. He is now 21.
There is a four-year gap between Ty and their second son, Zach. Since then, there has been a new son in the family every year or two, reports the Daily Mail.

Baby Tucker can rest assured that he will have many big brothers to watch out for him and show him the ropes.
"We thought maybe, maybe, you know, we’re going to have a girl. Number 12 could be the one," Kateri Schwandt said.
That is one outnumbered mom.
What do you think: Do you wish you had a lot of siblings to share life with?
