Apparently the whole “pregnant man” phenomenon didn’t stop at Thomas Beatie! Transsexual Ruben Noe Coronado, who was born as “Stephanie” but kept his female internal organs despite undergoing a sex change, is the world’s second pregnant “man” – and he’s carrying twins!
Says the UK’s Daily Mail,
Transexual Ruben Noe Coronado, 25, is due to become a dad at the end of September.
Ruben, born a woman called Stephanie, will bring the boys up with partner Esperanza Ruiz, 43.
The pair plan to marry before they become parents.
Bearded American Thomas Beattie made headlines round the world after giving birth to daughter Susan Juliette last June.
The 35-year-old, born Tracy Lagondino, is expecting a second child with wife Nancy this summer.
Like Beattie, Ruben is officially a man but retained his female reproductive organs.
When doctors told girlfriend Esperanza, already a mother of two, that she could not have any more children, she and Ruben decided he should try to become pregnant with donor sperm after undergoing fertility treatment.
He plans to give birth at a hospital in Barcelona, where the couple recently moved from Malaga due to family problems.
Once he becomes a dad he will continue sex change surgery interrupted to enable him to fall pregnant and give birth.
He is the first Spanish transexual to do so and it is thought he will become the world’s first transexual father of twins if everything goes to plan.
