Documentary About Pregnant Man
After he gave birth to his first child, the life of the Thomas Beatie known as the first pregnant man is set for a documentary film.
A British film and TV studio has won worldwide rights to produce a documentary about Thomas Beatie, who was born a woman but after surgery and hormone treatments lives as a man and gave birth last month in Oregon.
Beatie, 34, who kept his female reproductive organs after initiating a transgender transformation about 10 years ago, was reported to have given birth to a girl June 29 at a hospital in Oregon, where he lives with his wife of five years.
Delivery of the baby, conceived through artificial insemination using donor sperm and Beatie's own eggs, was confirmed by Beatie through People magazine on July 3.
Beatie first made world headlines -- and stoked public debate about the boundaries of gender identity -- when he went public with his pregnancy during a guest appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in April.
