The child is born as an alien baby who doesn’t stop crying and whose cries annoy the parents and everyone around them. Henry finds it difficult to fall asleep every night as the baby won’t just stop crying. The baby is born as an alien because of 20+ years of radiation poisoning that had modified Mary’s reproductive system.
