Most men would be relieved their anatomy means they can avoid the excruciating pain of childbirth. Thomas Beatie is the world's first pregnant man to give birth to a healthy baby girl
The American, who is a transsexual, was born a woman named Tracy Lagondino, but underwent gender reassignment surgery and now lives as a man.

In Hawaii, with a letter from a doctor certifying Beatie's psychological testing and irresponsible surgery, he was legally allowed to change his birth certificate from female to male
