The world’s first pregnant man, is preparing himself for the birth of his first baby, which is due in four weeks. Thomas Beatie was born female, named Tracy Lagondino, but had gender reassignment surgery and is now legally male and married to a woman. However he keeps his ovaries and womb so he could have children.
Mr. Beatie said that “Our situation sparks legal, political, and social unknowns. We have only begun experiencing opposition from people who are upset by our situation. Doctors have discriminated against us, turning us away due to their religious beliefs. Health care professionals have refused to call me by a male pronoun or recognize Nancy as my wife. Receptionists have laughed at us. Friends and family have been unsupportive; most of Nancy’s family doesn’t even know I’m transgender.”
Beatie, also appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, is proudly showing his growing belly in his exclusive interview with News of The World. He said that he and his wife may have more children in the future.
