In brief: Yes

Hypospadias is a congenital defect where the opening of the urethra is at the bottom, rather than tip of head of penis.
There is no association with infertility unless he had the misfortune of having an undescended testis (in 10% of boys with hypospadias)that is not functioning (doubtful if he is active and healthy). The biggest issue is the stream of urination & perhaps chordee-ventral curve.

In brief: Most likely

Almost all men with corrected hypospadias are fertile.
Only the occasional male born with very severe hypospadias may have fertility problems. Urethral meatus needs to be at the coronal sulcus (crease around the glans) or further up for successful natural impregnation, otherwise semen can be harvested and artificial insemination performed. Good luck.
