Joey and the High School Friend - S2-E11

Character mistake: Michael and Jimmy appears to have behavioral similarities. Joey therefore asks Gina when she slept with Jimmy, implying that he might be the father. Gina answers "22 years ago." Joey then asks how old Michael is, and Gina answers "22 years and 9 months." What? So he was born 9 months before the conception? Shouldn't he be 21 years and 3 months? (00:11:40 - 00:12:20)
