The world’s first pregnant man, Thomas Beatie, will write a memoir about his unique experience.
Love Makes a Family: A Memoir of Hardship, Healing and an Extraordinary Pregnancy will hit bookstores on September 30th. It will recount Thomas’ surgery that transformed him from female to male. The book also chronicles his experiences as a pregnant man.
Beatie was once in the Miss Teen Hawaii USA pageant and was on the Oprah Winfrey Show in April with his wife, Nancy. On the show he said that he had the “human desire” to be pregnant and that he is “a person and I have the right to have my own biological child.” He also said that being pregnant did not him feel more feminine,”It doesn’t make me want to go and shave my legs or something,” he told Oprah. “I’m a man, I just happen to be a pregnant man.”
Sometimes I wish my husband could carry our soon-to-be baby!
