‘Pregnant man’ granted sole custody
In 2008, Thomas Beatie made national headlines when he announced to the world that he was pregnant with his first child.
The transgendered man, who was born a female, had decided to keep his reproductive organs intact in order to start a family with his wife. He made that decision after he found out his wife was not able to reproduce.
Between 2008 and 2010, Beatie had three children through the use of artificial insemination. He was recently on a talk show when he revealed that him and his wife were filing for divorce. He claimed that his wife was physically abusive with him, and a judge has recently granted him sole custody of their three children.
