After having son number six, North Carolina mum Cher Lair and her husband Stephen decided they were destined to be a ‘boy’ household.  They told their local ABC News:

“Initially, on baby three and four, I’m thinking, there’ll be a girl at some point. They can’t all be boys. But after four and five and six, you’re kinda thinking, yeah they can,” she said.
 
When she learned she was having a seventh child, the family entrusted a friend with knowing the gender first, and she baked a cake to either reveal pink or blue inside.  You will smile as you watch her reaction as she finds out what’s inside the cake!

Lair comments that “We are happy we got exactly what we were supposed to get with all these six and with a girl,”.  How lovely!
