Pregnant Man To Become A Surrogate
THOMAS BEATIE, the world's first transgender man to give birth, is hoping to make history again - by becoming the world's first transgender surrogate.
The 36 year old and his wife Nancy welcomed their third son in July (10) and now Beatie has plans to get pregnant again - to help couples who can't conceive.
He tells Life & Style magazine, "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?'
"If I can do this and help make another family fulfil their dream of having a child, then that’s what I want to do."
And if that plan doesn't work out, Beatie, who was a subject of an Oprah Winfrey TV expose, is hoping to have one more kid of his own: "If we don’t find the right family for surrogacy, I think I have one more person inside of me."
