'Pregnant Man' Thomas Beatie has revealed he is calling it quits -- after having three children following a partial sex swap.

Beatie -- born Tracy Lagondino -- legally became male in 2002 but did not have his female reproductive organs removed.

He and wife Nancy stunned the world when Thomas became pregnant in 2007. They have since had two more children but have now decided three is enough -- and Thomas (37) is planning on having a hysterectomy.
Nancy (48) already has  two grown up children. She could not conceive after having a hysterectomy herself when she was younger.

But it was she who breastfed Austin, Susan and one-year-old Jensen because Thomas had his breasts removed.

He said shortly before Susan was born, "It's been excellent. I feel fantastic. I've been so lucky. I can't believe she's inside me. She's our little miracle. I'm just looking forward to holding her for the first time, to finally get to touch her and see her face."

He added, "It was a dream that Nancy and I've had for a long time, to start a family together."
During pregnancy, Thomas -- now living in Arizona -- had to stop taking male hormones but now says he never wants to go through it again.

He started having testosterone injections in his 20s which gave him facial hair and lowered his voice.
