A transgender man who was told he couldn’t get pregnant, has now given birth to a beautiful baby boy.
28-year-old Wyley Simpson, from Texas, had been undergoing testosterone therapy and hadn’t experienced a menstrual period for some time when he found out he was pregnant in February 2018.
I was nervous. I was very emotional, I started crying. I didn’t know what to do.
I was already worried as this was my first pregnancy.
But I was also nervous because I had to deal with a lot of stigma behind me being a pregnant man.
Alongside receiving rude comments from other people, the pregnancy took a lot for me emotionally.
Having gone through the transitioning process since I was 21 years old, having a physical baby bump was something so feminine that it messed with my head.
But it was all worth it to have Rowan and to become a father – I wouldn’t have changed a thing
Wyley gave birth to his son through an emergency C-section in September 2018. He and his husband enjoying the new additional to their family.
Wyley also told source he dont intend on carrying another child and hope to go continue his transition in the future.
I am looking to fully transition in the future, so the likelihood of having another child naturally is unlikely.
It was a great feeling to be able to carry Rowan, feeling him kick and going to baby scans, but for me as a person, it isn’t something I can continue to do.
I don’t see myself as any less of a man because of what happened, but I just do not identify in such a feminine way as to be pregnant – so it won’t be happening again.
But I am glad that I got to go through something as amazing and natural as birthing my own child, it’s definitely made mine and Rowan’s bond so much closer.
