      No, lol, though it was possible for me to have been so – the first test-tube baby, Louise Brown, was born on 25th July 1978, which is about two weeks after I was born!

      No, but my kids were born with the help of a more modern version of “in vitro fertilisation” called ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection). Its an amazing technology that helps people who would ordinarily not have the chance to have children.

      Everyday I look at my kids and think what a wonderful gift they are, and they would not exist if it were not for scientific progress!
