Families come in all different shapes and sizes nowadays, and no-one knows that better than Scott More, his husband Thomas and their two children, Gregg and Logan.
Scott and Thomas, who live together in California, were both born girls and underwent hormone treatments and surgery to become men. They are legally married to each other as Scott retained his female birth certificate.
Scott, who is thought to be only the second ‘pregnant man’ to go public is due to give birth to a son, they’ve already named Miles, in February, with his husband Thomas by his side.
The couple’s two children, Gregg, 12 and Logan, 10, are from a previous relationship that Thomas had with a female partner, who sadly died.
Scott, who was born Jessica, first realized he wanted to be a man when he was 11. He says that his family initially thought he was crazy but then allowed him to start taking male hormones when he was 16.
His parents were eventually supportive of him, even paying for the surgery to have his 36DDD chest removed. However, Scott could not afford the full gender reassignment surgery and still has his female organs.
His husband Thomas, was born Laura, and underwent a hysterectomy and gender reassignment surgery last year.
The transgender couple first met at a support group meeting for transgender men in 2005, but lost touch. They made contact again in 2007, and realizing that they had to be together, they moved into a four bedroom house. Scott says their boys call him ‘dad two’.
They decided to try for a baby together in December 2008, and Scott was inseminated with the sperm of a male friend, he finally fell pregnant in June 2009.
The two men say that they are confident that they can deal with any teasing Miles may get as he grows up in his unconventional family situation. Saying they are used to it, as their two sons already deal with teasing and bullying.
“My son Logan was bullied but now he just says to teasers: ‘You may have a problem with my two dads but I don’t so you’re not hurting me’,” Thomas says.
Scott is planning a natural birth at a local hospital, and says their doctor has prepared staff so they wont be shocked when a man turns up in the delivery room to give birth.
The world’s first ‘pregnant man’ was Thomas Beatie, from Oregon, who shot to fame when he gave birth to a girl in 2008.
