Criminal Sentence 482: Boys Having Babies

From a book I'm reading:

"The next day he became a grandfather when his son (BJ) gave birth to a son."

The book was not science fiction!

As far as I know, only ladies can give birth.

Don't you mean that only women or females give birth? Ladies are a sub-grouping of the gender, with connotations/denotations (depending upon your source) of income and behavior. I am definitely a woman, but there are some who would dispute any claim I might make to being a lady! 8-)
