Pregnant Man Pregnant Again
Number two on the way for transgendered man
-Julie Ryan Evans
Just FOUR MONTHS after giving birth to his headline-grabbing daughter, the “pregnant man” is pregnant with number two.
Lots of accusations are flying that Thomas Beatie got pregnant just for the fame and money … with his book Labor of Love coming out this week, the timing is quite coincidental, no? But lots of people want children close together, and for him, getting pregnant means delaying his return to male hormone testosterone, so I can see him want to get knocked up again quickly and move on toward his mission of manliness. Of course, I’m sure the timing of book didn’t hurt the decision either…
“Hiding a pregnant man is like hiding an 800-pound (364kg) gorilla,” he was quoted as saying. “Nancy and I wanted to tell our story from our own mouths before it got out.”
Regardless, it’s HIS body (when’s the last time you heard someone say that about a man?), so we wish him a healthy pregnancy. To hear more from Beatie and his wife, check out the interview tonight on 20/20 with Barbara Walters. Here’s a clip from The View that gives you a sneak peak.
