This has gotta be the most bizarre twist I’ve heard of all September – a child was born to a man who was once a woman who got pregnant by a woman who was a man and they want more!
The couple made history last year when the transgender ‘father‘ fell pregnant by the trans ‘mother‘. And now, four months after giving birth to their first child, Fernando Machado, who was born a woman and his partner Diane Rodriguez who was born a man have revealed they want to expand their brood.
The new parents, from Ecuador, have opened up about life with their new baby after becoming the first transgender couple to fall pregnant in South America.
‘Being a mother was never something I thought I would do because I am a transsexual,’ Rodriguez said. ‘The law before demanded that to be recognised as a woman you had to be castrated.’
The couple have kept their fans updated with the pregnancy journey and even shared pictures from the maternity ward when Mr Machado gave birth in June.
‘We live as man and woman. I’m a transfeminine woman and Fernando is a transmasculine man. The process to get here was complex for each of us, she said’.
