Family Has First Baby Girl In 137 Years, Dad Can’t Believe What’s Written On Local Billboard

Most of us think about the probabilities of having a boy or girl as being strictly 50/50, but for one special family, these probabilities have been turned onto their ear. The Setter family resides in South Carolina and until recently, they were the owners of one of the most bizarre streaks known to man. The family had gone a whopping 137 years without experiencing the birth of a baby girl.

When Kelen and her husband Will shattered the streak recently by giving birth to a baby girl, they knew that they had to do something special in order to commemorate the occasion. Will knew that he was hailing from a family that had not seen the birth of a little girl in many, many years, so he had to provide her with a name that would truly express the unique circumstances surrounding her birth.

They decided to name the little girl Carter, since it was a name that would allow her to stand out from the crowd. It is the type of name that you certainly aren’t going to hear on an everyday basis, that is for sure! A few days after the shocking birth of Carter, Will received an interesting phone call from a coworker, who told him that he needed to keep his eyes peeled for a highway surprise.

As it turns out, there was a billboard located between Bluffton and Savannah, a billboard that was emblazoned with a picture of his baby’s face! Just imagine the shock at seeing your precious baby girl, blown up 12 feet tall and 24 feet wide. If we were in Will’s position, we might have ended up crashing the car as a result of the shock.

Will was even forced to admit that the billboard was a tad bit obnoxious, but he definitely appreciates the effort nonetheless. One of Will’s friends even decided to tease him about the billboard, thanking him for keeping the occasion low key. For their part, residents in the area where the billboard love seeing it and appreciate the effort that Will went to when it came time to choose a name.

Would you like to find out more about this billboard and the birth that inspired it? If so, please be sure to watch this clip and share it with your closest friends and family members once it has concluded. A family tradition has now been broken and Will has an interesting new sight to behold each day as he makes his way to work.
