On Wednesday, August 26th, Cher and Stephen Lair, of Apex, N.C. welcomed their 7th child. What’s more surprising about a family having seven children is that this was Cher and Stephen’s first daughter! The couple are parents to 6 sons already and the video showing them learning their 7th child was finally going to be a girl went viral, even landing them on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
The only people more excited to finally meet baby Ruby than her parents were her very excited 6 brothers, and The News & Observer captured this incredibly beautiful video of each of the brothers holding their sister and it’s really just priceless.
The boys have a mixture of excitment and fear, now that they have a little girl to take care of. Little 7 year old Sawyer even exclaims that she’s ‘precious as a Ruby!’ The boys comment that they look forward to growing up with a girl since all they’ve ever known is boys, and they also look forward to their roles as ‘protector’ for the family’s lone girl. Brother Campbell is a little worried about all the pink, but I think he’ll do just fine. One thing is for sure, this little girl is definitely going to be surrounded by a lot of love!
Check out the super adorable video of all the boys holding their sister here.
