Transgender male, Thomas Beatie, has given birth to second child
The world’s first ‘pregnant man’, Thomas Beatie, who started life as Tracy Lagondino, has given birth for a second time, this time to a son.
Beatie, 35, had undergone gender realignment surgery but kept his vagina and other female organs because he planned to give birth one day. He and wife Nancy, who was unable to conceive herself after having a hysterectomy, were thrilled at the birth of their daughter Susan Juliette in June last year. Beatie was inseminated at home by wife Nancy, with sperm from a donor.
The Beaties, who live in America, have always maintained they are a normal, heterosexual family.
‘We are a man, woman and child,’ Beatie said after Susan’s birth last year. ‘It’s ironic that we are so different but yet, we’re just a family, just the same as anyone else. I am my daughter’s father, and that’s all I’ll ever be to her.’
