Thomas Beatie, A US Man, Gives Birth

Guess what?

That’s right.

This is NOT a hoax.


Thomas Beatie, a 34 year old American man has given birth to a healthy baby girl.

Born in Hawaii as Tracy Lagondin, Beatie began living as a man in his 20s and is now legally classed as male.

Beatie underwent gender realignment surgery but elected to keep his female reproductive organs.

Inseminated with sperm from an anonymous donor, both Mr Beatie and his daughter are reported to be doing well at a hospital in Bend, Oregon.

Girl Scout

The former model and Girl Scout had previously said, ‘I opted not to do anything with my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day’.

Back in April Dr Kimberly James, Mr Beatie’s obstetrician, had told Oprah Winfrey, ‘This baby is totally healthy. This is what I consider a normal pregnancy.’

Back in July I wrote about Thomas Beatie, a man in the United States who gave birth to a daughter in June.

It was one of those stories that sounded like a hoax, but wasn’t.

Now Thomas has just revealed that he is pregnant with his second child.

The 34 year old, who is legally recognised as a man, shared the joyous news in an announcement in a television interview with Barbara Walters of ABC News.


Mr Beatie, born as Tracy Lagondin in Hawaii, underwent gender reassignment in his 20s, though he kept his female reproductive organs so that he could have a family.

Thomas told Barbara Walters that the new baby would be due in early June and that he felt good and everything was going well.

Beatie has been married to his wife, Nancy, for five years and the couple purchased the required sperm from a donor when they decided to start a family.


Mr Beatie gave birth naturally to their first child, Susan, after a long labour.

He then told Ms Walters that he did not resume taking his male hormones as the couple wanted to have another baby.

The Beatie’s second child is due on 12 June.

  1. Did he/she take time to think about how their child would be treated because of this. I can just imagine how much this poor child will get picked on.

    • This story is so well-known now that the poor girl will not be able to escape this as they grow older. I too can only imagine what effect it will have on her.

  2. Oh deary me. What is this world coming to?

  3. A bit more info – Thomas Beatie is married to a 45 year old woman, Nancy, who I believe already has a couple of kids.

  4. I can see this leading to one confused child later in life.

    Congrats man!!

  6. Alison Rome says:

    It seems a bit strange offering congratulations to a man who has given birth.

  7. Which one of these babys parents will be the father?

    • Presumably, as Thomas is married to a woman, the two of them will take traditional roles in the baby’s upbringing.

  8. Strange, very strange indeed. What next?

  9. Every man should have a baby daughter.

  10. Congratulations Thomas I am sure she will bring you much joy.
