World's first pregnant man prepared to conceive 4th time if new lover can't
Transgender man, Thomas Beatie shocked the world when he was pictured clutching his baby bump, and now he says that he's ready to do it all again for his new love following his divorce
Beatie who had his first sex-change operation 15 years ago has still got a womb and gave birth to three children with his wife of ten years, Nancy – who was unable to have children.
This year the couple's ten year relationship broke down after Nancy, who had a hysterectomy before the couple married in 2003, started to drink heavily and Thomas was granted sole custody of their three children Austin, Jensen and Susan.
Today Thomas, who still has a womb but now also has a penis, has found love with day care worker Amber Nicholas. The couple want children and Thomas says if Amber struggles to conceive then he is happy to step in.
“Amber and I are totally smitten. We would love kids together and we are already discussing it,” Thomas told the Sunday Mirror.
“Being pregnant was the most incredible experience, but we want Amber to do it this time around. I think it would be amazing to experience pregnancy as the father.'
Surgeons have advised Thomas, who is originally from Hawaii but now lives in Arizona, against getting pregnant because he is biologically a man following a full sex change five years ago.
“It is just about which one of us would be more successful at having a baby,” Thomas said.
'It is even possible we could both be pregnant at the same time. Amber suggested we both try to get pregnant and whoever gets there first goes through with it,” he added.
