BEIJING, Nov. 15 (Xinhuanet) – Thomas Beatie, better known as the Pregnant Man, said he is expecting his second child, media reported Saturday.
The 34-year-old, who gave birth to a baby girl on June 29, made the announcement in a television interview with Barbara Walters of ABC News.
Thomas Beatie, better known as the Pregnant Man, shows off his newborn baby girl in a photo published in People magazine three weeks after the labor.
After the birth, he told Walters, he did not resume taking male hormones because he and his wife Nancy wanted to have another baby. The baby was due in early June. He felt good and everything was going well. "I had my checkups with my hormone level... everything is right on track," he said. Beatie is legally male but was born female and underwent gender reassignment surgery and hormone treatment. He kept his female reproductive organs so he could have a family. He has been married to his wife for five years and the couple bought sperm from a donor when they decided to start a family. (Agencies)
