Scott Moore, believed to be only the second “pregnant man” to go public, claims to be “blissfully happy” as he is all set to deliver a baby in February, leading British newspaper the “Daily Mail” reported.
Scott Moore and his husband, Thomas, were both born female and underwent surgery to become men.
Scott, born Laura, had his assets removed but still has female sex organs as his parents could not afford the full surgery.
The transgender couple, who live in California and have two sons, aged 10 and 12, whom Thomas had with a previous female partner, have decided to name their child Miles.
“We know some people will criticise us but we are blissfully happy and not ashamed,” 30-year-old Scott said.
The couple met in 2005 at a support group meeting for transgender men but lost touch — but saw each other again in 2007.
“We knew we had to be together. Two months later I gave up my job to live with Thomas and the boys. Now they call me ‘dad two’,” Scott was quoted as saying.
The couple, who live in a four-bedroom house, decided in December 2008 to try for a baby. Scott Moore was inseminated with the sperm of a male friend and fell pregnant in June 2009.
“We were so happy we did what all gay men do when they get excited — we went shopping,” Thomas said.
In fact, Scott’s case is similar to that of Beatie, a transgendered Oregon man married to a woman, who gave birth to a healthy daughter in 2008 and a son last summer. His wife, Nancy, breastfed the children.
