Pregnant Man Gives Birth…Again

Thomas Beatie, labeled the "pregnant man" last year by tabloids all over the globe and a highly-publicized interview with Barbara Walters, will have to find a new moniker, as he has given birth to a healthy baby boy. This is his second child—last June his daughter, Susan Juliette, was born. ABC News reports that Beatie had "a natural childbirth," and that his wife—who is unable to have children—will be breastfeeding the baby soon. Beatie was born a woman but kept his female reproductive organs after he had sex-reassignment surgery and changed his gender from female to male. The couple conceived their first child in 2003 using sperm bought off of the Internet, which Beatie's wife inseminated him with using "a syringe she had bought at a pet store."
