Thomas Beatie is just as excited as any future dad would be. Except this isn't your everyday miracle-making story: He's the one giving birth.
On "The Oprah Winfrey Show" Thursday, the 34-year-old transgender male from Oregon talked about being the world's first "pregnant man."
Wife Nancy -- who has two daughters from a previous marriage -- was unable to have any more children after suffering complications from a medical condition.
The couple say they've gotten mixed reaction from family members and neighbors.
Beatie was born and lived the life of a female for 24 years. It wasn't until after college that he embarked on his "true identity." Beatie took testosterone and had his breasts removed but kept his reproductive organs -- hoping one day to conceive a child.
He was artificially inseminated in 2007 but lost the baby. Beatie has carried this baby 24 weeks.
"Love makes a family" Beatie said. "And that's all that matters."
