The Pregnant Man on Oprah -- VIDEO

Thomas Beatie and his wife Nancy are a happily married couple and are expecting their first child. But it’s the husband, Thomas, who’s pregnant.

Despite having his gender changed from female to male, Thomas, 34, kept his female sex organs intact because he hoped to have a child some day.

“I actually opted not to do anything to my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day. I see pregnancy as a process and it doesn’t define who I am,” Thomas told Oprah. “I feel it’s not a male or female desire to have a child. It’s a human need. I’m a person and I have the right to have a biological child.”

    NAAASSSTYYY and disturbing

  • misleading

    I think this whole issue is a little misleading. Yes he is legally a man…but he was born a woman and still has ovaries, a uterus and a vagina. So it’s not really a man having a baby, its a transgendered man (born female) using the equipment he was born with. When I first read the headline, I thought that they somehow managed to implant a uterus/fetus in a guy and administer the necessary hormones that enabled him to maintain a pregnancy to term….that in my eyes would actually be the first pregnant man

  • peps

    I like to think I’m a pretty open person and all, but this one is a challenge. I’m not saying he doesn’t have the right or anything. It’s just something… it’s a really new concept to wrap my brain around. Wow.

  • Grace

    This person was born a female. So really this person is a female having a baby. Nuff said.


    SO STUPID……………. SHE IS NOT A MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! POOR CHILD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • bah

    I don’t know why this is news. We see pregnant woman everyday. This is a woman, that transformed her body to look like a man, and got pregnant, not a man that got pregnant…

  • oh snap!

    This is very weird but I wish his/her family all of the luck in the world.

  • Amy

    You either get to be a man or a woman. If you wanna chop yourself up and become a man, fine, but being a man means you lose that gift of birth. How can you say you feel like a man if you’re not willing to give that up? How selfish is it to bring a child into a family like that and submit it to torture from its peers for the rest of its life.

  • http://myspace zanessfan!

    How is he pregnant from his wife???..And how did he evcen get pregnant

    I think it’s weird but I guess it;s what people want in there life…HAHA

  • emily

    He said he went public to control the way the story got out. I think since he is working on a book about his life, he may be doing this for the publicity to boost sales. Usually you would think they would protect their privacy for the sake of their children. I admit when I first heard this story, I was curious to know the details and mentally felt it was not humanly possible if he was born a man.

  • Sophie

    Amy I couldn’t agree more with what you said.

  • lauren

    OMG!! =O

  • brittaney

    um okay nasty means a homosexual couple having a baby making look more hetrosexual anyways that isnt my point if he kept his reproductive organs did he keep his vagina or added a penis? ewww

  • Amy

    Thanks Sophie. This just angers me. I know people with Gender Identity disorder and it’s clearly a disorder for them. Then I’ve met people at school who are seemingly healthy and making the transition, too. But if you want to claim it isn’t a mental disease you have to be clear about what you feel like. If you really feel like a man, then you shouldn’t be giving vaginal birth.

  • iheartzdae!!!!

    umm i wonder if “his wife” was a guy? and how the hell did he/she get pregnant?

  • sugei!!! lov jb!!!

    thatsss iss nott ok!!!!

  • tinseltown


  • Demie

    wait so then if they’re both women…how did they get pregnant??

  • kim

    he was a woman
    eek trans

  • fraudulent story

    Thats a woman, people, she was born a woman and still has female organs.

  • Mercedes

    he is a she!

    that is ugly! you don’t believe that stupid thing1

  • Susan

    If you watch the video, it explains it all. He went to 9 different doctors before one decided to help him with this. If I remember correctly I think he said it was In vitro fertilisation. He said that although he knew he wanted to be a man and had his breasts removed, he decided to keep his female organs because he one day wanted a baby. I won’t go in to all detail about what was said but that’s just some of it.

  • KizzyKizz

    OHHHH MYYY…What is this world coming to….I think that I’m a pretty open-minded person, but what’s next??? I mean, SERIOUSLY?? Is this really on T.V???? This isn’t cool! And it definitely isn’t going to be fair to the child.

    All I can say is OMG!!!!!!

  • Here’s The Deal

    Ugh. This kid is going to be in therapy for a while.

  • Caribbean_cutie

    This topic is really disturbing!!! I read about it first in March…..I think the reason they say pregnant man is that legally she became registered as a man once he had all the changes made to his body……..Its weird to wrap your mind around this topic , if a girl feels as though she wants to date women and become a lesbian and have a child its fine, but to go the extra mile and become a man and still wants to become pregnant and have a child….is TWISTED!!! They had other options…It aint right!!!

  • http://JJ.COM YUCK YUCK


  • jc

    some people happen to born feeling like a man or female and there is nothing they can do about that. these innocent people undergo operations to make them more socially accepted.. and theres nothing wrong with that either. everyone wants to feel like they fit in. just like in hollywood people have plastic surgery because they want to fit in or become someone better. if he had the ability to bear a child when his wife isn’t able to.. then.. why not do it?
    its an extreme case.. and its definetly weird.. but its not disgusting.

  • Joseph

    JC – I totally agree. It’s funny, but who cares if they want to have a kid together, we as a society have no problem with single moms, gays adopting or living together so I don’t really see what the problem is. If they want them, let them have them – it’s no skin of your nose what they do with their lives as it doesn’t impede on what you do. Society just needs to get over themselves & learn that families come in different sizes & shapes!

  • talula

    I don’t see anything wrong with this. Here’s an adult in a committed relationship wanting to have a baby. What’s the big deal?

  • me

    Nancy has two adult daughters, one is married, and they are both fine with this.

    In fact the married daughter said her Mom and “Thomas” set a great example of “love” for she and her husband.

    Totally twisted!

  • Cindy

    Regardless of what he/she calls his/herself, that is not a preggers man. that is a preggers woman!

  • ashley

    I’m sorry but this just disturbs me.

    but it is a woman. biologically she was born a woman. so even though she’s a “man” now. she will always be a woman.

    it’s just kinda creepy to see this. and I’m not a bigot. it’s just weird.

  • Alfred

    Thanks for uploading this! I’ve been trying to look it up on BitTorrent but no torrents available.

  • raye

    This Thomas dude or dudette w/e is very selfish. You can’t have both worlds. Either you are a man or a woman. You can’t be both. And the docter who agree to this should be fired. So wrong…

  • alexaa;*

    Bt, he, is SHE truth?..
    haha, i mean i se in the notice she is a woman but like a manx)..

  • BexterzzNY

    alright, you know what?
    this is getting blown outta proprtion!
    he’s not the first ‘man’ to give birth.
    yes, he’s legally a man.
    but there was another tyrasgender who gave birth.
    so idk why everyone’s making a big deal of this.

  • monica

    that poor child will be traumatized.

  • pp

    What is the common denominator with all homosexuals and transexuals? Each one of them was either abused when they were a child, had no parent/s growing up or lost their parent early on in their life, witnessed abuse, murder, or any other traumatic event in their life. These people are ill and I can’t believe our society just accepts it and doesn’t put money into researching and finding a cure for these poor individuals.

  • What he said …

    I saw the Oprah show. To answer some questions. He didn’t fully become a man, so I don’t even know if he can even be considered transgender. He had his female breasts removed and started taking testosterone which made the c l itoris grow into a mini p enis. He said that he can have sex with that. I believe he still has a vagina. They got a sperm donation and then injected it themselves. So it was artificial insemination and not in vitro because he still has his female reproductive organs.

    The testosterone also gave him hair on his face and chest and made the outside body more male. His doctor said he’s been off testosterone for 2 years, so there shouldn’t be any effects on the baby.

  • Disgusting

    Is the end of the world to me. That’s too much.

  • Casey

    Well, after this transgender story, I think the ovaries will not be left fertile or intact in the next sexual conversion patient!

    Why would a woman who wants to be a man keep her ovaries to become a freak show? I suspect the doctor who performed her/his surgery is not too pleased with what is now occurring!

    Actually, I was impressed with the articulation of the “wife’s” daughters by a former marriage but found the mother and her own story as peculiar as the “pregnant husband’s”. As the neighbor said, I can’t wrap my mind around the pregnancy and find myself “sexually dyslexic”. As regards these people, whom I sense are doing it more for publicity and monetary gain than any other reason, I just cannot find the appropriate level of compassion. “He” has been in the process of writing a book since the age of 17 years, known his “wife” for 10 years, they married five years ago, had a miscarriage last year, and now pregnant again (with use of a veterinarian’s turkey baster) and donor sperm! Does “he” still have a vagina to deliver a child or will it be a C-Section baby? IMO this “guy” (along with his “wife”) has planned all this publicity for a very long time along with the “creation” of the book! No way are they making any money off my family!

    Oprah simply gets more freakier by the year. If this is the New Earth, then it is time for me not to return here in the next lifetime!
