'Pregnant Man' Thomas Beatie Delivers Second Child

The controversial "pregnant man," Thomas Beatie, gave birth to a healthy baby boy during natural childbirth this morning, 20/20 reports.

Beatie's wife, Nancy, is reportedly planning to breastfeed the couple’s newborn, as she did with their 1-year-old daughter, Susan Juliette.

Originally born a woman named Tracy, Thomas, 35, became a media sensation last year when photos of him with a beard and a pregnant belly were made public.

Questions surrounding the medical mystery were eventually answered when her spoke exclusively to Barbara Walters last year.

Beatie revealed he had sex-reassignment surgery, while still keeping his female reproductive organs, a decision that later benefited the couple as Nancy, 46, was not able to bear children.

During this conversation with 20/20, Beatie revealed that he was expecting the couple’s second child.

Another pregnant man is expecting twins this fall.
