The 21-year-old man, from the Eastern Cape, would have become a father this month.

The world’s first recipient of a donor penis and his girlfriend have lost their baby.

It is understood that he and his girlfriend lost their baby in a late stage of the pregnancy.

The 21-year-old man, originally from the Eastern Cape, would have become a father this month.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Stellenbosch (US) could not comment on the report.

“He’s very private; he didn’t even tell me the sex of the baby,” Professor Van der Merwe, head of the Stellenbosch University’s urology department who performed the transplant, told Rapport newspaper on 12 December.

It’s not clear what the unborn baby died of.

The recipient of the penis lost his penis four years ago due to complications resulting from a circumcision.
