A Californian transgender couple are set to have a baby next month
A second man has revealed he is pregnant and due to give birth to a baby boy in February. Scott Moore, and his partner Thomas, were both originally born as girls and later had sex changes. Scott was inseminated with the sperm of a male friend and got pregnant in June 2009.
The unconventional couple, who live in California, already have two sons, Gregg, 12, and Logan, 10, whom they adopted. They are the children of Thomas’s former girlfriend who died.
Scott, who was originally called Jessica, realised he wanted to change sex from the age of 11. "I was always a tomboy,” he told the Daily Mail, “but when I started to develop breasts I realised I'd been born in the wrong body.
“When I told my family, they thought I was crazy, but they gradually realised I was serious and allowed me to start taking male hormones when I was 16 years old."
He decided to keep his female birth certificate and was therefore able to legally marry Thomas.
"I opted not to have a penis because I couldn't afford it and I didn't think the results were very good - it had nothing to do with wanting children because back then I didn't think I'd ever have them."
The couple have faced difficulties during the pregnancy, finding it hard at first to find a doctor or midwife who would treat them.
However, they’re now looking forward to the impending birth. “We want to show the world that trans-families can be healthy, loving and nurturing,” explained Thomas.
The first pregnant man was Thomas Beattie who gave birth to a baby girl in 2008.
sad and narrow minded i am not, i just cannot see why youd have a sex change and do the most womanly thing there is, and i personally would never want to do anything to cause my child difficulties in life which this MOST certainly will, and lets be honest, Publicity seems to fuel these 'men'
Now do go away, dont come on and name call regulars its not clever. but then i guess you wont return, they never do.
I agree..why feel like a man, is totally a man, always been a man just in the wrong body....but will then happily do one of the most womanly things you can do! get pregnant and birth!
