Hayden Cross, 21, stopped his gender reassignment in 2016 to have a baby

Describing pregnancy as a transgender man, Cross told ITV's Lorraine:  'It was a really big battle but it was worth it' - and says his daughter is a 'daddy's girl'
21-year-old says he's just like any other parent when father and daughter are out


The UK's first pregnant man has revealed that carrying a child for nine months as a transgender man was 'a big battle' and he wouldn't advise anyone to go through it.  

Hayden Cross, 21, from Gloucester, stopped transitioning to start a family of his own in 2016 and gave birth to a daughter Trinity-Leigh, one, in June 2017.

Appearing on ITV's Lorraine this morning, Cross, who was born Paige, opened up about the realities of being pregnant as a transgender man, saying giving birth brought up 'a lot of emotions and a lot of feelings' and he didn't feel well supported.

He explained to presenter Lorraine Kelly: 'I wanted a biological child that was mine so I could start my own family.

'I don't know if I want a long term relationship in the future. I didn't want to wait just in case I don't. I wanted to know that I could still have a family without having to rely on somebody else.'

Transgender men do have the capability to become pregnant themselves if they keep their uterus and ovaries in tact.

One such transgender man who decided to get pregnant was Thomas Beatie, of Arizona.

Beatie decided to get pregnant in 2008, after his then-wife was deemed infertile.

Beatie was born as a woman, Tracy Lagondino, in Hawaii in 1974 but began taking testosterone to become a man in his twenties.

In 2002, he legally transitioned into a man by undergoing a mastectomy but kept his vagina and uterus in tact for the possibility of having children in the future.

When he and his wife were ready, Beatie went off testosterone and conceived using a sperm donation.

The couple went on to have three children together: 7-year-old Susan Juliette Beatie, 8-year-old Austin Alexander Beatie and 9-year-old Jason James Beatie.

Beatie and his wife announced they were getting divorced in 2012.

'I have a very stable male gender identity. I see pregnancy as a process, and it doesn't define who I am. It's not a male or female desire to want to have a child - it's a human desire... I'm a person, and I have the right to have my own biological child,' Beatie said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

The crux of the story is total bullshit...

She was still female when she became pregnant, and when she gave birth..

She should only be considered a "he" when a complete change is finalised -- irrespective of any irrational drivel being splashed across popular media, or being spouted by any special interest groups.

Claiming to be the worlds "first pregnant man" still remains a total crock of 'shite..

Yet there's such a stink when people slip up and call them by the sex they were born with? You can't really have it both ways, can you. Call yourself a man and yet keep your womb and ovaries and have kids?
