A man in South China almost divorced  his wife because he thought his daughter's blood type couldn't possibly come from the couple.

The man surnamed Fang in Jiangmen, Guangdong Province took his sick two-year-old daughter to the hospital where he found his daughter had type B blood. He understood that he and his wife are type A and O and surmised they couldn't produce offspring with type B, the China News reported on Tuesday.

The enraged man was finally consoled when a paternity test proved his daughter is his biological child. Fang's older daughter also has type B blood, tests confirmed.

The doctor also informed Fang that his wife's blood was actually type AB.

Fathers who have type O blood and mothers who have AB-subtype blood can give birth to children with B-subtype blood, doctors told Fang.

It's not known if Fang gave his wife and daughters an apology.
