The Pregnant Man: Baby Daughter Susan Juliette Meets The Press

Do you remember when the world thought the story of a pregnant man was as hoax? It’s official now – there’s a baby, and there’s photographs of her.

Thomas Beatie, the transgender man who became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl on June 29 introduced his daughter to the media on Wednesday. She’s cute, and look at all that hair!

The little girl is named Susan Juliette after Thomas’ mother, and weighed 9lbs 5oz.

She was born after a marathon 40 hour labor. Respect to you, Thomas.

Both baby and dad are doing well. “I weigh two pounds less than I did before I got pregnant,” says Thomas. “And I don’t have a single stretch mark.” This couple are getting no end of abuse from certain groups, and now you can add the stretch mark afflicted and everyone still carrying baby weight to the haters.

Thomas’ wife, Nancy, is breastfeeding their baby, she induced lactation with hormones and physical stimulation with a breast pump, and Thomas is up at every nightly feeding to keep them company.

For some reason, perhaps because my son’s father is so apathetic about caring for his son, I like this story, I’m wishing this loving family well. Even though it took me a whole lot longer than four weeks to loose my baby weight…
