EXCLUSIVE NEWS


 Pregnant man splits from wife
 By Wendy Carpenter 
 
The Upshot –Thomas Beatie, who made headlines in 2008 as the only legally recognized man known to have given birth, has separated from his wife of nine years, according to People magazine.
Beatie, who has had three children with wife Nancy, announced the split during a taping of the CBS syndicated show "The Doctors."


"Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we're going through a rough patch right now," the 38-year-old Beattie said on the show, which will air May 7. "At the moment, we're separated."

Beatie also revealed that he's had the final female-to-male gender reassignment surgery.

"Nancy hasn't seen the new me yet," said Beatie, who started the sex-reassignment surgeries in 2002.
The couple wed in 2003 in Hawaii, and Beatie gave birth to their first child, Susan, in July 2008. Since then, he has given birth to two sons, Austin and Jensen. All three children were conceived through artificial insemination from a sperm donor.

The entire family, who lives in Bend, Ore., appeared on another episode of "The Doctors" in October, during which time Beatie revealed he was considering a hysterectomy, according to People.

He also discussed how people have reacted to the transgendered dad and his family, and detailed the medical complications from years of hormone treatments.

Beatie was born in Hawaii as Tracy Lagondino in 1974. He was a Girl Scout, model, and finalist in a Miss Hawaii Teen USA pageant before he began to dress and live as a man in his 20s, he told People. He had sex-reassignment surgery in 2002, took twice-weekly doses of testosterone, and had his breasts surgically removed during his female-to-male transition before legally changing his gender on his passport and Hawaii driver's license.

In 2003, he legally married Nancy, a divorced mother of two who had had a hysterectomy due to endometriosis.
Despite his legal male status, Beatie left his female reproductive organs in place, and had never undergone "bottom" surgery, known as phalloplasty, to create an artificial penis — until now.

Beatie made world-wide headlines in 2007 when pictures of him pregnant with a beard went public, before he officially announced in April 2008 on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and in an interview with People that he was expecting a child while legally living as a man.

"If Nancy could get pregnant, I wouldn't be doing this," Beatie told People at the time. "Who hires a surrogate if they are perfectly capable of carrying their own child?"

That same month, Beatie wrote a first-person piece on his experience as the world's first pregnant man in "The Advocate," saying "Doctors have discriminated against us, turning us away due to their religious beliefs. Health care professionals have refused to call me by a male pronoun or recognize Nancy as my wife."

It's unclear if the couple will divorce, though the International Business Times reports that "more information will be revealed" when the interview airs next month.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
