My sister, Donarta, got pregnant some nine months ago.
She went to her nearest hospital, the government-run Dedza District Hospital in Central Malawi.
Hospital personel carried a scan on her, six times.
Every time, the scan showed that Donarta would deliver a baby-girl.
Six times, the scan and hospital personnel assured her, and us, that it would be a baby-girl.
"It's a baby-girl," she said in her second month of pregnancy.
Six times, Dedza District Hospital medical personnel carried a scan on her, which revealed it was a baby-girl.
Well, two days ago, Donarta delivered.
That was expected: that she would deliver one day.
But out of the expected came the unexpected. Can you guess what we have in our hands now?
A smiling baby-Boy!
