The Pregnant Man, otherwise known as female-to-male transgender Thomas Beatie, is blaming Sonny and Cher offspring Chaz Bono for stealing his spot on Dancing With the Stars 2011 season 13. Beatie, who is known more often now by the nickname â€˜The Pregnant Manâ€™, says he wanted to be on the show but thinks he was rejected in favor of the more famous Chaz Bono.
Thomas Beatie became known as The Pregnant Man back in 2007 when he decided to get pregnant because his wife was infertile after he had gone through a female-to-male sex change. He has since given birth to two additional children. Although not the first person to have a baby following a female-to-male transition, Beatie is debatedly the first person legally recoginized as a man to give birth after transitioning.
