    this happened years a go ..


    Homas Beatie, the world's first pregnant man - or male mother - has unveiled his new toned figure, just 12 months after giving birth to his third child in three years.

    Mr Beatie, who now lives in Arizona with his wife Nancy and their three children, garnered international attention around the world when he became the first legally transgender man to become pregnant.

    Now he and his wife have completed the family they always dreamed of, and the 37-year-old appears to have started taking testosterone again, helping him develop his muscular physique.

    He was pictured playing in the water with the couple's youngest child, Jensen, who was born naturally on July 25 last year.

    The couple also have a three-year-old daughter called Susan and a son called Austin, who will be two in September.


    He said his successful T-shirt printing business, Define Normal, folded because of his fame. He said: 'We tried to keep up with regular orders, but we lost a lot of customers because of prejudice, and then the economy took a huge downturn.'

    In March Mr Beatie revealed he had filed for bankruptcy and was desperately seeking a job to get his family off welfare handouts and pay his $5,000-a-month mortgage.

    Mr Beatie was born as a woman, Tracy Lagondino, in Hawaii in 1974, but says he always felt like he wanted to be a man.

    When he was in his twenties began having testosterone injections, giving him facial hair, a lower voice and altering his sexual organs.

    In 2002 he had a mastectomy and legally became a man - but he chose to keep his vagina, uterus and other female sexual organs so the couple could have children, as his wife had had a hysterectomy.

    He told Oprah: 'I wanted to have a child one day. I didn't know how. It was just a dream.'


    After more than eight years, he stopped taking testosterone so he could become pregnant, although some of its effects, including facial hair, are permanent.

    The couple bought sperm from an anonymous donor and Mr Beatie underwent artificial insemination. After an ectopic pregnancy which led to emergency surgery, he eventually fell pregnant with Susan in late 2007.

    Astonishing photos of Mr Beatie with a baby bump and a beard made headlines all over the world, and he appeared on chat shows explaining how he and Nancy considered themselves like any normal heterosexual family.
    He also revealed that the couple can have sexual intercourse, because the male hormones enlarged his clitoris so much. He told Oprah: 'It looks like a penis. I can have intercourse with my wife.'

    He had his next two children in quick succession, as he only had a short window of not taking testosterone.

    Mr Beatie has just eight menstrual cycles a year instead of 12, and only half of these cycles are useful for conception as he has previously had a fallopian tube removed due to an ectopic pregnancy.
