It's a miracle, pregnant man tells Oprah
Last Month Thomas Beatie, the former Tracy Lagondino from Oregon, told gay magazine 'The Advocate'. I had gender reassignment surgery and I am now legally male and married to a woman.
"I opted not to do anything with my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day," he told the talk show host.

CHICAGO (Reuters) -- A transgender man who is six months pregnant said in an interview aired by Oprah Winfrey that he always wanted to have a child and considers it a miracle.
"It's not a male or female desire to have a child. It's a human desire," a thinly bearded Thomas Beatie said. "I have a very stable male identity," he added, saying pregnancy neither defines him nor makes him feel feminine.
Beatie, 34, who lives in Oregon, was born a woman but decided to become a man 10 years ago. He began taking testosterone treatments and had breast surgery to remove glands and flatten his chest.
