A Chinese couple who already has seven daughters has allegedly spent more than 90,000 yuan (£10,345 or N4.7m) buying a son from strangers in order to carry on their family name.

According to the Mail Online the couple, Mr. and Mrs. Chen, have been arrested and charged by the authority of Fengshun County in China’s Guangdong Province.

Local reports say the baby boy, just over a month old, had been abducted and sold to the couple, but Mr. and Mrs. Chen told the court that they had not been aware of that fact.

The incident was revealed by a recent report from a programme called ‘Mingsheng 820’ aired on the Meizhou Broadcasting and Television Station.

They had been trying to have a baby boy. However, all of the seven children they have are girls and they are aged between two and 18, Mr. Chen told a reporter from Meizhou TV.

Therefore, the couple decided to buy a son.

The couple was reportedly introduced by acquaintances to a family who had a baby boy ‘for sale’. The family had been named the Wangs.
