The pregnant man is no longer pregnant … and he’s showing off his baby daughter to the world.
Beatie reportedly endured 40 hours of labor before a midwife delivered the baby naturally on July 3. And, after just four days at the hospital, the little one and her family were able to return home.
Beatie, who was born a woman but had surgery and gender reassignment which legally makes him male, decided to carry the child for his wife Nancy because she had a hysterectomy years before. However, Nancy is able to breastfeed the baby thanks to a process known as induced lactation.
Beatie says that he kept his reproductive rights because “wanting to have a biological child is neither a male nor female desire, but a human desire.”
