Thomas Beatie. Everybody knows him as 'the pregnant man' of the world. Recently he and his wife and five-month baby spoke to media together for the first time. Beatie stated that they are expecting their second child in June and the sperm came from the same donor. "I lived my life as a woman at that point. Legally, I was female. But inside I still felt male. So the way other people perceived us, they saw us as a lesbian couple," the 34-year-old man explained. However, he acknowledged that they have legal problems with their first baby's birth certificate. He also describes his first delivery as life-changing experience. It may be recalled that the couple met 18 years ago and married after living nearly 12 years later. Beatie kept his female reproductive organs despite the fact that he underwent a surgery. Miracle of science !
