Thomas Beatie Welcomes A Son!

Thomas Beatie, who the media has labeled as the “pregnant man,” gave birth to his second child, a healthy baby boy early this morning (June 9), 20/20 reports.

Sources state that it was a “natural childbirth” and that the boy is not yet named. Beatie’s wife, Nancy, 46, will reportedly breastfeed their son, as she did with their daughter, Susan Juliette, who was born last June.

Photos of a bearded Beatie with a pregnant belly caused quite a stir last year, leading to headlines about the world’s first “pregnant man.”

Thomas, 35, was born a woman and had his breasts surgically removed. He legally changed his gender from female to male. Beatie said that he retained his female sex organs because he intended one day to get pregnant.

Congratulations to Thomas and Nancy!

    I’m confused. How is it that the wife is going to nurse the baby if the husband is the one that actually gave birth?

    Lindsey, I can’t remember specifics now but it is possible to breastfeed having not given birth.

    Congrats to the family on their new son!

    lindsay, a woman can take synthetic hormones that mimic the hormones she would naturally produce after childbirth, and these can stimulate the breasts to produce milk.

    i am sorry if i offend but SHE is sick. truly.. they are 2 women… PERIOD.

    I agree with Daniella, to be more correct the title should state “Bearded lady gives birth to a baby”. If she wants to be free to have a child as a transgendered female, I am not bothered by that. I am however annoyed that she wants to seek fame by being the first man to give birth and incorporates two lives in her quest

    I agree with the last 2 comments. What they do with their life and children is their business but I completely disagree that Thomas is labeled a pregnant man. Yes, he can change his gender/physical appearance/name etc but he/she still has a female reproductive organ, thus he/she is still a female.

    i hope they home school their kids, otherwise other kids in school will bully the s#$% out of them.

    Who cares if these kids are raised by two women? This is 2009 – Lesbians are having kids all the time. Get used to it. Jodie Foster has kids, Melissa Etheridge has kids…etc… As long as kids are loved and cared for – who are we to judge?

    um, Monkey no one is judging.. we’re just sick of people who fame wh*re themselves out and their kids.. it will affect the kids one day and they have considered it i am sure.. but will not see the full ramifications sadly until the kids are older. There are some sick people out there and honestly.. drawing attention to their unorthodox life/etc could draw the focus and negative attention of those people. And these people ARE NOT CELEBRITIES.. this is celebrity baby scoop right? They got lots of media attention and stuff but i guess that’s what qualifies as ‘celebs’ these days. Oy vey.

    any word on the little bundles name?

    I think they are referring to him as the pregnant MAN because he legally changed his gender to MALE. So yes, he has a right to be called a man, despite having female organs. You don’t call someone who isn’t married a Mrs., why call someone who’s changed to a Mr. a Ma’am?

  13. with luv!!
