Despite only having half a body, Kenny Easterday insists he can live the life of a normal man.
Now he appears to have proved it after claiming he has fathered a child.
Easterday, 35, was born with a rare condition called sacral agenesis, which prevented his spine from developing normally.

Kenny is so small he can fit inside a suitcase but that hasn't stopped him playing pool, bowling, working - or having a love life with fianceé Nicky, 33.
The pair are soon to found out if Desiree is actually Kenny's child. And they hope to start a new family to join Nicky's two children.
'I want a child to carry my name, someone that can carry my legacy and be able to say 'Well that's my daddy',' he said.
As a boy Kenny was offered prosthetic legs but he hated wearing them and preferred to use his hands or a skateboard to get around.
'My dad pretty much taught me how to walk on my hands,' said Kenny, from West Virginia, USA.
As a child Kenny starred in the 1988 film, The Kid Brother, a dramatised version of his early life.
'If I'm handicapped it's because of these damn legs,' Kenny said in the film as he pushes over his prosthetic legs.
