A former Asda worker Hayden Cross, 20 has made news as the first British man to become pregnant–after he decided “to pause his gender reassignment process so he could give birth,” reports MailOnline.
Cross, who was born female found a sperm donor on Facebook and became pregnant four months ago.
The website adds that, “He will complete his transition, which will remove his breasts and ovaries, after his child is born.”
Hayden who lives in Gloucester and receives unemployment benefits, has lived legally as man for three years.
“He has been taking male hormones which have given him facial hair and a deeper voice. Desperate to have a baby at some point in his life, he asked the NHS to freeze his eggs before he completed his transition.”
“But he was left devastated when doctors refused to give him the £4,000 treatment and decided to look for a sperm donor online so he could give birth before he is no longer able” says the report.
He has told the Sun on Sunday that: ‘I want the baby to have the best. I’ll be the greatest dad.’
Though Cross case is interesting, he’s not the first—the first man in the world to become pregnant was Thomas Beatie, from Arizona, who gave birth to three children after having a s*x change.
