Irineu Cruz and wife Jucicleide Silva have been trying for a little girl for almost 20 years and they’ve only managed to add more boys to the family.
The couple have a brood ranging from one month to 18-years-old – but the couple say they won’t stop trying until a girl arrives.
During Jucicleide Silva’s first pregnancy, the couple agreed that the dad would name the boys and Mum, the girls.
But the couple has since christened all 13 boys after famous footballers, all beginning with the letter R.
The family, who live in Concei ao de Coit , Brazil, hoped their thirteenth child would be a game-changer but instead,d the midwife announced it was yet another boy.
