    U of MN Hospital delivers 19 boys in a row


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     bash1122 shared these photos of his new niece, Ladan, and her father surrounded by TV cameras at the University of Minnesota Medical Center Fairview where she was born on Monday, after 19 boys in a row. The boys started arriving 9 p.m. Friday and didn't stop until shortly after 7 a.m. Monday, the hospital said. (CNN affiliate WCCO has more on the story here.)

    Ryan Davenport, media relations director for Fairview Health Services, said they were unaware of a streak like this ever happening before at the medical center. 'One of our nurse managers is calling it a "statistical marvel,"' he said in an email. As of Monday, the medical center had delivered 106 boys and 77 girls for the month of November.

    The baby's father, Mohamed Guled, said when his wife was about to have the baby, he said 'the room became full of nurses' wondering if their baby would continue the streak (the couple didn't know the gender).

    Guled is owner of a company called Dauus, which makes diapers under the brand name Nuna. He decided to donate a three-month supply of diapers to the 19 baby boys born before his daughter. 'Since we spoiled the party for them not being the 20th boy, we can at least give them a consolation prize,' he said with a laugh.
