Date August 12, 2019

Thomas Beatie's story has been worldwide headline news as a fully legal man and husband gave birth. However, his journey to becoming who he is today started many years back.

Thomas Beatie was the first pregnant man

Thomas Beatie was born as a female, but from the age of 10, he knew that something was wrong with his gender. He felt that if he could choose, he would pick another gender. The man started a gender transformation when he was 23. The journey took time and six surgeries to complete the process. Finally, he was in a body he wanted all his life.

However, Thomas kept his reproductive organs at the prospect of having his own biological kids in the future. During his marriage with his first wife, Nancy, Thomas decided to give birth to their children due to Nancy's health problems.

Thomas embarked on the journey of artificial insemination so they could start a family. He gave birth to three healthy babies. He was the first pregnant man legally recognized by the United States government. Thomas said:

"I was simply a pregnant husband; something I would hope any man would do for his family, if his wife were unable to do so."

Unfortunately, their love didn't last long and Nancy and Thomas got divorced in 2012.

It took four years for them to finalize their marriage in the court battles. As a result, Thomas was awarded custody of his three children.

Thomas moved in with his children's school director, Amber, a mom of two. The new family had a lovely wedding, in Phoenix, Arizona, despite the challenges they faced.

Thomas and Amber welcomed a baby son together. The couple have four kids!

Thomas is a happy and proud father. Finally, he has a large family he always wanted. All his children are amazing, and none look any different than any other kids.

Thomas said in the interview with Daily Mail Online:

"I always tell the kids we are unique, we were formed in a different way from other families. They understand that and love to talk about it."

Thomas never fails to demonstrate all of his bundles of joy on his Instagram page! And they are blossoming into beautiful boys and girls. These kids were little miracles, but who says miracles don't happen?
