Beatie began to identify as a male when he was ten years old, and he went public in 1997. He got sex reassignment surgery in March 2002.
Because his wife, Nancy, was infertile at the time, he became pregnant through artificial insemination in 2007.
In 2008, Beatie made history by being the first guy to get pregnant and give birth, and he has since had two additional children. His life altered radically after revealing his pregnancy to Oprah Winfrey in an interview. Since then, he’s continued to publish personal essays and books on his pregnancy experiences, and a number of TV programs and even films have been produced to raise awareness about the subject.
Unfortunately, as more people discover about Beatie’s history and continue to refer to him as a pregnant man, he has been subjected to constant media attention and misunderstanding from strangers.
Beatie has two additional children with her then-wife Nancy Beatie after having her first kid, Susan, in 2008. Beatie married his second wife, Amber Beatie, née Nicholas, who worked at the nursery he attended, in 2016, after the pair divorced in 2012. In 2018, they had a kid together, which Amber gave birth to.
Beatie and his family now live a pretty tranquil life in Phoenix, but Beatie does take up public speaking assignments or minor parts on occasion (you may have seen him as a supporting role in a U-Haul commercial). His oldest children, aged 11, 12, and 13, alternate between his house and their mother’s house, which is around 10 miles away. When the whole family is gathered at home, they go swimming, play checkers, or try out new cuisine.
Beatie is proud of his life and family, despite the opposition. Beatie stated, “I don’t see anything wrong with being a pregnant man.” “I was ecstatic to be a father, and I am still ecstatic to be a father.” I’m really proud of the fact that I was the one who brought my children into this world. It’s similar to a badge.”
Beatie is currently enjoying a reasonably calm life in Phoenix, Arizona, with her family, and is on a quest to teach people about her experience.
