No, he was conceived the usual human way. His father was just informed of this before the act by an angel of God.

How was John the Baptist conceived?

To find out who conceived John the Baptist we must look at what is recorded in chapter one of Dr. Luke's Book, Luke, in the Bible. It is stated that, "… after those days his [Zacharias the priest's] wife Elisabeth conceived…" (verse 24). Therefore, the "Spirit" did not conceive John the Baptist, it was Elisabeth who conceived John the Baptist. If the question is who begat John the Baptist, we can also find the answer to that question in verse 13. The angel Gabriel told the priest Zacharias, "… thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John." The word "thee" in that passage is the Greek word σοί which literally means tothee, thine own (Strong's Concordance, G4671). So we know that John the Baptist was the literal biological son of his father Zacharias and his mother Elisabeth. The fact that she was barren (not able to have children) and in her old age when she conceived John the Baptist in itself was a miracle of God just like it was a miracle of God when Sarah, Abraham's wife, was barren and in her old age when she conceived their son Isaac.
