Doctors said her unborn baby girl, who is due in a week, was in good condition. The couple plan to name her Isabella.
Germany Becomes First Country To Allow Parents To Register The Gender Of Their Babies As 'Indeterminate Sex
Germany has become the first European country to recognise 'indeterminate sex' by allowing babies born with characteristics of both sexes to be registered as neither male nor female. The new regulation, which takes effect from today, stems from a study by the German Ethics Council into intersexuality that concluded that the rights of intersex individuals against irreversible medical interventions should be better protected. German passports, which currently bear an 'M' for male or 'F' for female, will soon be allowed to have an 'X' in the gender field, according to a spokesman for the interior ministry.

A man who claims he tipped federal investigators to the location of Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan eight years before his killing and has hired attorneys to help him collect the $25 (£15.6) million reward. Gem dealer Tom Lee, 63, claims that in 2003 a Pakistani intelligence agent, from a family he had known for decades, told him bin Laden was in Peshawar in Pakistan, not Afghanistan. But Lee has allegedly described how he had been sent on a mission by Pakistani intelligence services to relocate bin Laden and his family to a small compound in Bilal, Abbottabad. During their hunt for bin Laden, US authorities offered the reward to anyone who supplied information that led to bin Laden's capture or conviction. The FBI has so far refused to comment.
