Pregnant Man: “My Wife and I Are Normal Couple”

Thomas Beatie, known as "the pregnant man," along with his wife and five month baby girl, appeared in an interview on Nov. 18, together for the first time.

The 34-year-old man said he has been ten weeks and expecting their second child in June, and the sperm comes from the same donor, according to CNN report.

When asked whether he considers himself gay when he met with Nancy — his wife now, Thomas said they were a normal couple although perceived by others as lesbians.

"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," Thomas said.

He said they could have normal kind of intercourse after reassignment surgery and hormone treatment.

The pregnant man said they have legal problems with their first baby's birth certificate.

"I filled it out as me father, Nancy mother, and they changed it last minute, and they put her as father and me as mother. And then they changed it again and put us as parents. We're not a same-sex marriage. We're legal man and wife," said Thomas.

Mentioning his first delivery, Thomas called it a life-changing experience.

Thomas and wife Nancy met 18 years ago and married after living nearly 12 years later. He underwent surgery but kept his female reproductive organs so he could have a family. They bought sperm from a donor when they decided to start a family. (Agencies)
