Thomas Beatie: “I Want To Be A Surrogate”

Thomas Beatie – who the media has labeled as the ‘pregnant man’ – tells Life & Style about his new mission to help families in need.

I want to be a surrogate,” he says. “When I was first approached with the idea, I thought it was crazy. Then I thought about what it means and what having a family means to us. I thought, This is a huge deal and I’m capable of it, why not?”


Thomas, 36, and wife Nancy welcomed their third child, son Jensen, in July and want to help other couples who cannot conceive on their own. “If I can do this and help make another family fulfill their dream of having a child, then that’s what I want to do.”

Thomas says they might add to their family as well. “If we don’t find the right family for surrogacy, I think I have one more person inside of me.”

Thomas and Nancy are also parents to daughter Susan, 2, and son Austin, 1.

This is one sick family if Tracey wants to be a male then be a male. She is selfish she can’t have it both ways. Imagine how her children lives will be affected because of her.

Yes, how terrible it must be for those poor children growing up with two adoring parents who love them and each other.

Just because you don’t understand it, or it doesn’t “fit” into your world view, doesn’t make it wrong. It’s just different, and different is perfectly okay.

Sounds like she is missing the spotlight. not a good reason to become a surrogate.

Agreed! I’m so over this person. Raise your kids with your wife and move on. Your 15 mins. of fame are over.

As long as they’re happy, that’s all that matters. I really don’t care that they’ve chosen to have kids this way. Their children seem healthy and happy. As for him being a surrogate, that is his decision also. If they can bring some joy to an infertile couple, then I say go for it. Being a surrogate is a tough thing to do. If he can handle it, then I say good for him. It’s not something I think that I’d be able to do for strangers. He’s definitely a strong person than I am.

Well, he wants to be a surrogate cause pregnancies gives him PR cause you know, pregnancies are his PR source. Every time this person gets pregnant there are interviews, publicity and what not, so it’s obvious he wants more of that.

Absolutely disgusting. An abomination. They don’t deserve to have kids or be allowed to raise kids. I pray for the mental health of their kids. People just like to take things too far. First she didn’t want to be a female but a male. Then he she decided to keep the uterus and get pregnant and give birth to a child. It’s either you’re male or female. God have mercy on their souls. And he.she wife is a lesbian because he.she was originally a female.

I’ll repeat what I said above:

“It’s either you’re male or female.”

Why? What’s it to you if someone wants to be both and be called the Queen of Sheba?

What these people do in their lives has no affect on you, so I really want to know: Who Cares?!

You should read this:

Especially the section on abominations. You might learn something if you can close your mouth for a second and open your heart & mind instead.

Some people will do any thing for attention! I just wish that these people (and Kate Gosselin) would just go away. I wish their kids happy and healthy childhoods, but I never want to see or hear from them again!

I agree whole-heartedly.

Just having a uterus doesn’t make you capable of being a surrogate. I support this family but hope that Thomas realizes just how much responsibility comes with bearing another couple’s child. His comments make it sound like he thinks it’s an easy thing to do.
