Sometimes, when your family is complete, you just know. And that feeling can be cause for celebration! Mom-of-three Amber Cole is taking a two-pronged approach to this celebration, baking a cake and having her husband get a vasectomy.

“We have three boys and we always get the question ‘Will you try for a girl?’” Cole tells Babble, “and my answer is always ‘We did, twice.’”

She explains that while she loves her kids, she doesn’t need another one.

“Truly, we are thankful for the three little dudes we have and decided we are done having children,” she says. “I needed a c-section with each baby, so we decided it was my husband’s turn to take one for the team.”

The timing of Cole’s husband’s surgery happened to coincide with his thirteenth anniversary of military service—something Cole bakes a cake for annually. This year, however, the cake looked a little different.

In case you were wondering, the snip went smoothly. In fact, Cole’s husband said it was easier than he thought it would be.
