A myth created by Verne himself, as his conduct at the time was rather deplorable. Verne travelled with his friends to Scandinavia in the last of the pregnacy of Honorine in 1861.
He arrived home after Michels birth on the 3rd of August.
Some sources say that he was just in time for the birth, Verne himself has given 1860 as the year of the journey.
