According to reports, Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi opened up about his childhood in a brand new and ultra candid documentary called Birthday Song that launched on YouTube. While talking about how he first fell in love with music and what it was like growing up the youngest of four kids, his most shocking revelation came when he revealed that he was a mistake. It turns out, his dad “was supposed to have had a vasectomy, which was obviously botched.

Capaldi was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and lived there until he was 4 years old. Thereafter, when his family relocated to East Whitburn in West Lothian, Capaldi, the youngest of four children, loved it. Capaldi's birth was a very unexpected one, as his mother's pregnancy with him occurred after his father had undergone a vasectomy, leading to his being jokingly referred to as an 'immaculate conception'.
