Thomas beatiefamily.jpgBeatie, who gained some fame last year as he spoke with the Advocate, Oprah, and Barbara Walters about the details of being a transman who kept his reproductive organs, went off hormone, and became pregnant, had a second baby yesterday morning.

Sources close to the couple say that it was a "natural childbirth" and that they have not yet decided on the boy's name. Beatie's wife, Nancy, will be breastfeeding their son, as she did with their daughter, Susan Juliette, who was born last June.

That's two babies in less than a year! Someone's looking forward to getting back on the hormones....

Congratulations to the happy family and good luck!

and it happened with much less fanfare and rancor - I wish the best for them. Will Barbara Walters be the godmother ;-)

yay! i gave the beatie's a shout out on my blog too!

regardinng on how much attention the media put on this event- i mean it reached even a local humanitarian magazine in Heraklion on Crete
so.....people here were making they cross
in greece the greek orthodox people do a cross with their hand on their chest if they see any church - might be scarry if on public bus- or if they hear or see smth "strange"
so here people made a cross on their chest and said oh this world is falling apart
and than continued to do what they usually do....drink and drive- sheet on their wifes....steel on taxes and stuff like that.....
Some other people like school teachers tried to expalin it like its not natural to change your sex and all this chemicals and its againts nature....bla bla
and if he wants to be a man - why is he still using womans organs and bla bla
But me and my t-guy we actually love it
i guess it takes a lot of courage and strenght
if you really not up to it - to use organs which for you not really are yours
and they look so happy content
i am so proud of ya
well done.

Congratulations to the happy family!

There are some people blessed with excellent genes and T Beatie and Nancy are no exception. When I saw the family on Oprah, Nancy's adult daughters were there too.

This is a family of exceptional beauty. And the babies that Tom had are gorgeous and thank God, healthy.

I wish them all continued good health, love and happiness on completing the cycle of life.

And anyone out there that had an objection to such a cycle, to this family's happiness and how they manage that happiness...FU and the insane horse you rode in on!
