It’s a boy! Pregnant man Thomas Beatie gives birth again


Barbara Walters pictured with Thomas Beatie and his baby daughter Susan Juliette, in November 2008.

Once a headline sensation, Thomas Beatie, the “pregnant man” just had his second child yesterday, and the headlines are nearly buried amidst Pride fervor.

From ABC news:

Sources close to the couple say that it was a “natural childbirth” and that they have not yet decided on the boy’s name. Beatie’s wife, Nancy, will be breastfeeding their son, as she did with their daughter, Susan Juliette, who was born last June…

..The couple described their unusual path to parenthood in an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters last year, during which they revealed that Thomas was expecting a second child.

Then in his first trimester, Beatie told Walters he did not go back on the male hormone testosterone after Susan’s birth so he could have another baby.

“I feel good,” he said. “I had my checkups with my hormone level, as far as the HCG. And everything is right on track.”

In last year’s exclusive interview, Beatie spoke to Walters about Susan’s birth, which was also not via Caesarean section. He was in labor for 40 hours; Nancy Beatie cut the umbilical cord.

The local family may have been big news mere months ago but it looks like fickle Oregon has already moved on. Hopefully the Beaties will have some peaceful family moments in pastoral Bend, Oregon. Now if he was able to make it to Pride, that would be news…
