Define the sex of the child

A 35 y/o pregnant female, primigravida at the 32nd week of gestation, that was referred to our prenatal diagnosis for a mild polyhydramnios. CVS at the 11th week, revealing a normal 46 XY karyotype. Routine prenatal ultrasonographic at the 20th week and 30th week of gestation shows a normal fetus with no mention of the external genitalia. Delivery was at the 39th gestational week. The female external genitalia with clitoromegaly at birth are shown. Now, what is the sex of the child? and how should we proceed? Please explain.

Swyers SYNDROME
Sweyer Syndrome..3. Swyer syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by the failure of the sex glands (i.e., testicles or ovaries) to develop. ... Despite having the XY chromosomal makeup, girls with Swyer syndrome look female and have functional female genitalia and structures including a vagina, uterus and fallopian tubes. Most cases of Swyer syndrome are not inherited; they occur in people with no history of the condition in their family. These cases result either from nongenetic causes or from new (de novo) mutations in a gene that occur during the formation of reproductive cells (eggs or sperm) or in early embryonic development.
