So, I just read on People.com that the pregnant man is pregnant for the third time. Thomas Beatie, for those of you who don’t remember because you’re totally crazy, was in the news a couple years ago when he carried he and his wife’s first child. Thomas was born a woman and underwent sex change surgery, but kept his reproductive organs. Nancy, his wife, is unable to carry children because of a hysterectomy, so the job of Baby Oven went to dad, who apparently loves it so much that they’re doing it again.
I am no longer amazed by this, but I definitely think it’s cool and a total miracle. Part of me wishes they’d just adopt because there are lots of kids out there who need adopting, but I also think unconventional stories like this give hope to any couple who is having trouble having a child of their own.
