This is obviously the best boob-related news item in recent history, beating out even Tri-Boob. There’s so much to love about it — I mean, just picture in your head being at Walgreens. You’re waiting in line to pick up your prescription. The woman ahead of you is ostensibly buying a breast pump. You happen to glance up from your phone just as the woman takes her boob out of her shirt, aims it at the cashier, and squeezes breast milk into his or her face.

And he just popped out his second kid—this time, a boy. So how exactly does a dude get knocked up? Turns out Thomas was born a woman, and while he had a sex change, he didn’t undergo phalloplasty. In other words, he doesn’t have a penis, and all of his female reproductive organs are still in tact. Since his wife, Nancy, had a hysterectomy, they decided that Thomas should carry their children rather than adopting or getting a surrogate. But even though Thomas was the one doing the pushing, he’ll assume the father role while Nancy takes over as mama. She’ll even be breastfeeding the new baby. Keep reading »
