There is hope for the Nyeri Men! Prof André van der Merwe, a South African urologist known for conducting the world's first successful penis transplant in 2014 has told the BBC he is delighted the recipient is to be a father.

"I am very pleased, and this is what we intended, that he should be able to stand up and be able to urinate and have intercourse, so it is a milestone for him," said Prof Andre van der Merwe.

He said the patient's partner is about four months pregnant and though he hasn't seen the woman, and is not going to do a paternity test, he has no reason not to believe him.

"We have to take this as evidence that the transplant worked."

The 21-year-old recipient lost his penis in a botched circumcision.

The recipient, is still being monitored six months after the delicate nine-hour micro surgery was successfully completed at the Tygerberg Hospital in December last year.

The man is still under observation as the team check for possible improvements to be made for future operations, which could take place as early as mid-August.
