The tenacity of some people is amazing. Some will drop everything as soon as problems begin to loom on the horizon, while others will run to their goal at any cost. Briton Alexis Brett can boast of invincible determination, who, in order to give birth to a girl, first had to give birth to 10 boys.
Alexis Brett’s family with a new tiny addition
Having given birth two years ago to her youngest son with the unusual name Rothagaidh, Alexis Brett became the first British mother to give birth to 10 boys in a row. But nevertheless, she still thought that her family was incomplete.
And just a couple of weeks ago, she became the mother of 11 children at the age of only 39. In the last 18 years of her life, she has spent more than 8 years in a state of pregnancy, and now she is very happy that she has such a large family.
The girl was named Cameron
After a long streak of boys, Alexis finally gave birth to a girl, whom she named Cameron. The woman says that the boys treat their sister well and are very attentive to her, being very quiet so as not to wake the little girl.
Despite having so many children, Alexis’ last pregnancy was unplanned, so it came as a surprise to everyone. Having learned about the pregnancy, the family was waiting for the next boy, but the doctors managed to surprise them.
The ages of 10 boys range from 2 to 17 years
The family has become accustomed to comments from the public, some of which are not always pleasant. “Some people think we’re doing this to get benefits, but that’s not true. David [husband] has a good job, which means we’re not even eligible for full child benefits,” Alexis said.
Her husband is a train driver and usually leaves the house around 5:30 am, leaving his wife to enjoy the rest of the quiet time she usually spends on coffee and showers before the kids wake up.
Being a mom of 11 kids isn’t easy, as she has to load 49 washes a week and vacuum 7 times a day, yet Alexis plans to return to her job as a part-time fitness instructor in a few weeks.

Of course, life with so many children is not sugar, and Alexis honestly admits that she and her husband sometimes exchange looks that mean “What have we done.”
However, children always come up with something amazing, melting the hearts of their parents, thereby conveying the soothing thoughts that, in the end, it was worth it.
