Thomas Beatie, a transgender male known as the world’s first “Pregnant Man,” has announced that he has separated from his wife of nine years.
“Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now.

Beatie chose to have a baby after learning that his wife Nancy, 49, could no longer have children and made headlines around the world when photos of his bearded face and pregnant belly were made public, according to PEOPLE.
