Look! The World’s Second Pregnant Man!
We were totally enthralled by the story of Thomas Beatie, the world’s first man to give birth. Our jaws dropped as we watched him on “Oprah” explaining the mechanics of his partial sex change and his pregnancy. And not only did he give birth to a healthy baby girl, but Thomas and his partner also went on to have a little boy. Well, it looks like Thomas is about to have some company. After the jump, everything you need to know about Scott Moore, the world’s second pregnant man. Scott Moore, 30, and his husband Thomas (a coincidence?) want “to show the world that trans-families can be healthy, loving and nurturing.” The two were born Jessica and Laura respectively. But while both went through sexual reassignment surgeries and hormonal treatments at a young age, Scott opted not to have a hysterectomy or get a penis. The two met and fell in love at a transgender support group in 2005. They were legally married soon after in California. (Scott retained his female birth certificate, while Thomas legally changed his gender.) After adopting the two sons of Thomas’ former female partner (Gregg, 12, and Logan, 10), the couple decided to grow their loving family. Thus, Scott is due next month. “We know some people will criticize us, but we are blissfully happy and not ashamed,” said Scott. Good for them. It looks like Thomas Beatie and Scott Moore may have started a birth revolution. [Telegraph]
