Unscientific poll

A relative just had a baby in a small hospital in IL. They have a website with a "newborn gallery" where the first names of the babies and parents are listed.

In seven cases only the mother's name was listed. And in six of those, the baby was a girl.

I thought I'd heard somewhere that fathers were more likely to stick around if they had a son. Maybe that's what is going on here.
