Pregnant Man : No Such Thing Right ? Not According To The Media
(March 23) - A Spanish transexual man is expected to give birth to twins at the end of September.
Ruben Noe Coronado, 25, plans to marry partner Esperanza Ruiz, 43, before the babies arrive, the Daily Mail of London reported. The couple live in Barcelona.
Coronado put his sex change surgery on hold to go through fertility treatment using donor sperm when his partner learned she couldn't have any more children. Ruiz is already a mother of two.
"It's like being born with three hands. You take advantage of them while you have them and you get rid of one of them when they get in the way," Coronado said of his female reproductive organs, the Mail reported.
Coronado, who was born a female named Stephanie, plans to continue his sex change operations after the babies are born.
He said he wouldn't sell his story "to protect my children," but went public "so people start to see transexual pregnancy as normal."
"But I am thinking of selling the picture everyone's going to want of me looking pregnant. If I don't do it, someone else will and they'll make a fortune," the Mail reported.
Last June, American Thomas Beatie caught the world's attention when he gave birth to a daughter. Beatie is now pregnant with a second child and due this summer. Take a look at photos of Beatie and his family below.
I was watching TLC and they had a special on the "pregnant man" Thomas Beatie. He has gotten attention from all over the world and even appeared on Oprah. The media has dubbed him the "pregnant man" like its some sort of a miracle giving birth.
It would be if he had a penis but that's not case he was born a woman. Now we have this other woman I'm sorry transsexual man that going to give birth and its in the news ! Why all the sudden a woman giving birth is extraordinary all because he has facial hair and lives like man ?
