Children are gifts from God so having them in abundance denotes more blessings. Some actually don’t like the gender God gives them so they continue procreating in the hope that the ‘right’ person will soon come their way.
Perhaps this could be the situation of Alexis and David who have nine sons and are expecting yet another boy. Alexis, 37, and her husband David, 42, are thought to be the first couple in the UK to have conceived 10 sons in a row.
The former nurse is now just one boy short of a football team, but insists she won’t complete the set, as she will be sterilized as soon as she gives birth later this month.
Alexis, from Inverness, in the Scottish Highlands, says: “At every 20-week scan, we found out the sex, but I’ve no idea why we bothered as, deep down, we already knew.
“It’s amazing I’ve had so many boys. It’s thought I’m the first in the UK. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. People always ask if have I been trying for a girl.
But I can honestly answer ‘no’. I’m happy with my boys. I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with a girl now.”
