First penis transplant recipient's girlfriend is pregnant


In December, Stellenbosch University Dr. Andre van der Merwe performed a penis transplant on a man whose own was amputated after a (majorly) botched circumcision led to gangrene. Van der Merwe says that his patient just informed him his girlfriend is four months pregnant.

"He's definitely smiling big," van der Merwe says. "He's proud. He's also a little bit shy."
