“Pregnan Man” Thomas Beatie Wins Sole Custody Of Children

An Arizona judge has ruled that Thomas Beatie, the so-called “pregnant man” will continue to have sole custody of his three children. His estranged wife, Nancy, will get only supervised visits.

”The Court’s decision today reinforces our argument that the Mother’s domestic violence and substance abuse pose a serious danger to the children, whereas Mr Beatie’s transgender status does not.” explained Beatie’s lawyer, David Cantor.

Thomas—who gained notoriety when he became pregnant after transitioning from female to male—said he hoped Nancy “continues to seek treatment and that, in time, she will be able to effectively parent.”
