Thomas Beatie returns to the spotlight. The pregnant trans man, who caused a sensation by appearing on Oprah earlier this year, graces the ever-classy pages of News of The World to show off his increasingly large baby bump.
In addition to revealing the baby’s sex – a girl – Beatie suggests he and his wife may keep reproducing after the new child arrives in four weeks:
I feel on top of the world.
I’m 36 weeks now and almost due but I feel fantastic. Every day Nancy and I think about how we just cannot wait to hold our daughter for the first time, to finally get to touch her and see her face.
We have her nursery ready and her diapers are lined up in her bedroom. Everything is ready to go. We have even picked a name which we both loveâ€”although we’re waiting until she is born before we tell anyone. All the people who really know us and love us, our friends and family, have been incredibly supportive.
So much so we might even have more children. We will just see what the experience is like with our daughter’s arrival first and then give it some thought.
We’re sure trans activists are luke warm to this news.
