Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie Called it Quits After 9 Years of Marriage
After 9 long years of marriage, Thomas Beatie also known as ‘Pregnant Man’ called it quits to his wife Nancy Beatie.
“Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated,” Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie said in a taping interview of “The Doctors”.
Thomas Beatie gave birth to their first child Susan in July 2008. He then gave birth to two sons named Austin and Jensen. All three children were born through artificial insemination using donor sperm since the couple are both females.
Thomas Beatie rose into fame in 2007 when he became the world’s first known pregnant man appearing in photos, bearded with a pregnant belly. He and his wife appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show and have also been featured on 20/20 with Barbara Walters.
Naturally born as female with a name of Tracy Lagondino in 1974, ‘Pregnant Man’ Thomas Beatie began his sex-reassignment surgery in 1998 by injecting male hormones like testosterone.
In 2002, he met his wife in Hawaii and had his breasts removed as he legally changed from female to male just to marry his wife. However, she had never undergone ‘bottom surgery’ and has retained his female reproductive organs in place.
