The Hermaphrodite: Tracy or Thomas Beatie

Many websites are reporting that Thomas Beatie (The Pregnant Man) is pregnant with his (or her) third child.

Thomas Beatie is a hermaphrodite male who was born as Tracy Thomas. In 2002, Tracy had gender reassignment surgery and decided to keep her female reproductive organs.

He (or she) has appeared on the Oprah Show and Barbara Walters. On these shows, he (or she ) revealed that she was born a woman, she had her breast removed, legally changed gender from female to male and underwent a phalloplasty (to form a penis).

To get pregnant the first time, Tracy decided to stop taking her prescribed testosterone treatments (pills used to fully transform her into a more masculine appearance).

Tracy (or Thomas) first child - a daughter was born in 2008. In 2009, she (or he) gave birth to a boy.

She's currently pregnant with her third child and is scheduled to give birth soon.


  1. Yesterday, while browsing through television channels, i found myself watching the Discovery Health channel.

    A documentary on the Pregnant Man came on and i actually sat still to watch the entire documentary.

    I have no idea why this person was called a pregnant man. During the documentary, he (or she rather) admits that he has a micro penis and a vagina. He never removed his micro penis. He also talked about "it" being erected when he's engaged in intercourse with his (or her) wife. It was rather disgusting and real but i was upset that they didn't admit that he was born as a hermaphrodite. It would've made sense to inform the public.

    Before this came on, there was a another documentary called, "Transgendered and pregnant". It was about two people who were born that way..having a baby. The baby wasn't born that way. They gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

    In both cases, the non-pregnant partner was given a hormone shot which allowed breast feeding.

    It was so weird and educational but they didn't say that these people were hermaphrodites even though all their conditional equated to the term. If you're not busy, try catching it again on the Discovery Health & Fit Channel.

  2. Thomas showed pictures and video clips from his life as a female model and a martial arts instructor.

    When she was a model, she kept "it" tucked. She still has his micro penis and has no plans to remove it.

    He became pregnant through artificial insemination (sperm purchased over the internet and shipped to his residence).

    She's also planning to have her fourth child.

  3. Edit:

    they didn't say that these people were hermaphrodites even though all of their conditions equated to the term.
