For the first time in more than 100 years, the Underdahl family has welcomed a baby girl into its midst.
“We all expected it to be a boy,” said grandpa Conrad Underdahl. “I had four boys. I was a single boy. I expected it to be a boy,” he told IE.
The last time a girl was born into the family was 1914. Then along came Auerelia, who arrived on April 12 and broke the long tradition.
Mom Ashton Underdahl, who has a toddler son named Archer, also expected her second child to be a boy.
“I had actually already bought little boy bedding for baby number two and then I found out it was a girl,” she said.
When a sonogram showed her baby was a girl, the family had a hard time believing it.
But now they are tickled pink.
