Pregnant Man No Longer Pregnant!

7/3/2008 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Thomas Beatie -- the 34-year-old former woman turned transgendered pregnant man who went on Oprah -- has given birth to a biological girl.

We're hearing the whole thing was totally cloak and dagger. He checked into the hospital in Bend, Ore. under a fake name after going into labor early Monday morning and his room was sealed off, away from other expectant moms. The baby was delivered by C-section later that day.

What many of you folks are missing is this. Thomas sees his reproductive organs as a means by which he can have a biological child. He does not recognize them as being "female". Had his wife been able to conceive, she would have been the one carrying their child.

This is one of the positive things with being transgendered and keeping your biological reproductive organs: that you can have a biological child.

Not all who are transgendered want to go the route that Thomas did. My FTM son wants children, and he has asked his older brother to provide the sperm (through invetro-fertilization) to his wife. This is the one way that my son can have a child that is most closely related to him. He will make a wonderful father when his children are born.

Thomas' reproductive organs were the vehicle by which his child was born. His daughter will cherish the unconditional love that she receives from her mom and dad.

Those who define gender by reproductive organs have much to learn.

9. Of course it's a girl. Duh. They didn't have any Y chromosomes to factor in, only two X chromosomes so this is no surprise. The surprise will be what the baby wants to be when she grows up. Apparently it doesn't matter if you were born a girl or a boy, you can change it; her mom and "dad" makes that case for her.

Are you really ignorant enough to believe that their were no possibilities for a male child?

...go back to school and get some basic middle school genetics lessons please, the world has enough uneducated people already.

I don't know why they keeping calling her a man, she had a baby she's a female. I blame the press for giving this so much attention, if they'd drop it the whole thing would go away and I really don't think anybody is that interested in her/it.

Not that I always agree with choices people make in this world. But I truthfully believe it's no body's business the choices made by this couple. And yes Thomas will be the baby's father brcause they will raise the baby as that. It's horrible how some of you people show your true colors by saying horrible things about other people. Even if you don't agree there are other ways of speaking your beliefs.. Truthfully disgusting people with vile mouths.

i wish thomas, his daughter and his loved ones all the best, but it's not at all accurate to label him as a "pregnant man" when he has female genitals. he can identify as whatever he wants, but there's really nothing remarkable about a biological female giving birth.

Go to YouTube.com and search "My Secret Self". This is a five-part story done by Barbara Walters on 20/20. You may learn something about what it means to be transgender.

dee ache (116) - the pregnant man spin was probably something the media tacked on to get more publicity.

THIS IS A WOMAN!!!! NOT A MAN!!!!! I am so sick of hearing about the "first pregnant man" !!!!! She is a woman who is transgender and gave birth! That is nothing special....she has all the parts she needed to conceive and carry this baby. I don't know why this is such a big story! She has always been a woman and no matter how she dresses are what surgery she might have done or might do it doesn't change the fact that she is a WOMAN!!!
