Congratulations to Thomas Beatie, the original “pregnant man” who’s expecting his third child with wife Nancy after giving birth to Susan in 2008 and a son in 2009. But a bigger congratulations are in order: Thomas and Nancy have learned how to monetize their children!
With all the publicity surrounding their family, the Beaties have been engaged in the tried and true practice of photo deals; they’ve teamed up with the paparazzi agency Splash News to sell their photos to magazines and websites like MomLogic, which has a gallery of Thomas’s newest baby bump. It’s how Heidi and Spencer have been supporting themselves for years, and how the Beaties will afford to keep these three children in diapers.
That, or their reality show.
