Thomas Beatie gives birth to baby girl
Thomas Beatie, the transgender man who hit the headlines back in April due to his pregnancy, gave birth to a baby girl on Sunday. Although he has been taking hormones for years Beatie still has functioning female reproductive organs.
In the eyes of the law Beatie is a man and has been married for over ten years. The couple wanted to have a baby but Beatie's wife had had a hysterectomy so the couple started to think about the possibility of Mr Beatie carrying a child. He became pregnant through artificial insemination.
Beatie's wife recently told chatshow host Oprah Winfrey that the couple would have traditional parental roles like any other married couple: "He's going to be the father and I'm going to be the mother."
