Pregnant Man Desires Fourth Child
Thomas Beattie, a transgender male who became famous as the “Pregnant Man” has told press he desires a fourth child.
After giving birth himself to three children with his wife, Nancy, he would like to try for a fourth.
Thomas and Nancy are currently undergoing a divorce. Thomas would like to have the fourth child with his girlfriend, Amber Nicholas.
Ideally, the couple would like their fourth child to be carried by Amber– but if she is unable, Thomas will gladly become pregnant with their child and deliver via caesarian, because he is biologically a man.
“Being pregnant was the most incredible experience, but we want Amber to do it this time around,” he told the Mirror. “I think it would be amazing to experience pregnancy as the father.”
However, if Amber, who has two children from a previous marriage, cannot get pregnant, he will gladly step in.
“It’s even possible we could both be pregnant at the same time,” Beatie, who lives in Arizona, told the Mirror. “Amber suggested we both try to get pregnant and whoever gets there first goes through with it. My surgeon has advised against me getting pregnant because it would be a lot harder now I’m biologically a man. I would have to have a caesarian, but I’d willingly do it to have another bundle of joy.”
Beattie has gained worldwide attention after posting pictures of himself with a beard and pregnant belly. He gave birth to his first child with wife Nancy, in 2008.
“The first doctor we approached was a reproductive endocrinologist. He was shocked by our situation and told me to shave my facial hair,” he wrote for The Advocate in 2008 while pregnant with his first daughter. Adding, “A few months and a couple thousand dollars later, he told us that he would no longer treat us, saying he and his staff felt uncomfortable working with ‘someone like me.'”
