Oregon man announces he's expecting a baby and is due this summer.
Sounds like a soap opera story line—woman has sex change (including chest reconstruction and testosterone therapy) but keeps reproductive organs. Now she's a he. When his wife is unable to conceive, he uses frozen donor sperm to get pregnant himself.
But this is not a daytime drama, it's very, very real. Thomas Beatie says although he's carrying their child--reportedly a girl--he'll act as the baby's father while his wife will be Mom. Beatie, who is currently five months pregnant, shares his personal story in this month's edition of The Advocate.
Considering the stereotypical man has a hard time dealing with the common cold—we wonder how this dude's handling the joys of pregnancy.
