Thomas Beatie & Little Susan Jullette

Thomas Beatie & Little Susan Jullette

Thomas Beatie, the no longer pregnant “Pregnant Man,” is in People Magazine with his 3 week old baby daughter, Susan Jullette. What a cute father-daughter picture! According to People, Susan took 40 hours of labor and was born the old fashioned way. It cracks me up to write that about a man giving birth. Anyway, all are well and happy and Nancy is doing the breast feeding after inducing lactation with hormones and a breast pump.

I can’t get enough of Thomas Beatie, the pregnant man, and neither can many of you! Searches for Thomas are a popular way of finding this blog, and he remains popular on talk shows and in water cooler conversations. We’re about to get even more of Mr. Beatie, Nancy and their baby. September Films beat out several other companies to purchase rights to The Pregnant Man, a documentary on Thomas’s life from childhood through parenthood. Now, September Films doesn’t release movies for theaters; they’re more in the educational film line with titles that seem to focus on rare, medically-related phenomena. I’m willing to hunt for this movie, though. I wonder if I can score an autographed copy…

Congrats to Thomas Beatie and his wife, Nancy! Thomas, the pregnant man, gave birth to a healthy baby girl this past Sunday. The birth was natural (not a C-Section) and took place at St. Charles Medical Center of Bend, OR. No other info seems to be available yet, but when I hear it I will post it here!

cnn.com image of Atlanta Aquarium’s rare pregnant (male) Weedy Sea Dragon

Thomas Beatie, the pregnant man of international fame, is not the only male preparing to give birth!  Congrats to the Atlanta Aquarium, as one of their rare Weedy Sea Dragons is also with child, or rather, with eggs.  Sea Dragon males receive the eggs from the female during an intimate water dance in which the couple swims vertically while holding each other.  The men then carry the eggs to term.  Once hatched the young are on their own, and do not need parenting.  Luckily, Thomas is looking forward to being a very active dad, unlike our Sea Dragon.  However, Sea Dragons rarely become pregnant in captivity (only thrice, so far), so it’s a very exciting event!  Just when you think something unnatural has happened, nature goes and proves that she thought of it first.  Congrats to all the pregnant dads of the world, then!

We’re at four weeks ’til the due date and counting! For those of you who somehow haven’t heard, Thomas Beatie is the world’s first pregnant man that we know of. He and his legal wife, Nancy, have been all over the news and talk shows discussing their pregnancy and family. Thomas has raised the issue of gender to a new level in the public eye by queering our long cherished definitions of appropriate gender and biological roles for men and women while living out his dreams and creating a happy, healthy family. Good work, Thomas & Nancy! So, how does something like this happen? Read more after the jump.
