“Pregnant Man” Thomas Beatie Separates From Wife

In 2007, Thomas Beatie made headlines when he became the first high-profile trans man to become pregnant and give birth to a child. But in a taping of The Doctors this week, Beatie announced that he and his wife, Nancy, have separated.

In the episode, airing May 9, Beatie, 38, explained that “like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated,” reports People.com. Since initially giving birth five years ago, Beatie has had two more children with his wife.
