Pregnant US man hails ‘miracle’

BBC News 4 April 2008

A US man who is six months pregnant, 10 years after undergoing a sex change operation, has said he considers his unborn child a “miracle”. Thomas Beatie, 34, said it was his right to have a child. The medical procedures he underwent a decade ago did not affect his reproductive system. His wife says she inseminated him using sperm from an anonymous donor. Their doctor says it is a normal pregnancy.

Mr Beatie told chat show host Oprah Winfrey he had always wanted a child. “It’s not a male or female desire to have a child,” he said. “It’s a human desire. I have a very stable male identity.”
