US ‘pregnant man’ shows off his new baby bumpMarch 26th, 2009 - 1:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 26 (ANI): Thomas Beatie, the US ‘pregnant man’ who gave birth to a baby girl last year, is expecting another tot in June.
The transsexual, 34, has shown off his new bump by posing with first baby Susan Juliette.
Beatie was born female, named Tracy Lagondino, but had gender reassignment surgery and is now legally male and married to a woman.
He decided to carry a baby for his wife, Nancy, because she had a hysterectomy years ago. He was able to get pregnant because he kept his female organs when he switched genders, reports The Sun.
Before becoming pregnant, Beatie stopped the testosterone injections he was receiving as part of his gender reassignment.
The couple bought donor vials from a cryogenic sperm bank and, facing resistance and prejudice from doctors, resorted to home insemination.
He said of his latest pregnancy: “I feel good. Everything is right on track.” (ANI)
