In the spring, Thomas Beatie wrote an article in the national gay magazine ‘The Advocate’, revealing that he was legally male and that he was pregnant and the news spread like wildfire across the internet. Beatie, welcomed a baby girl, Susan, June 29.

Beatie who is in his first trimester, and his wife, Nancy, hadn’t spoken to the media since until they sat down last month with Barbara Walters. Beatie revealed to Walters he did not go back on the male hormone testosterone after Susan’s birth so he could have another baby.

“I feel good,” he said. “I had my checkups with my hormone level, as far as the HCG. And everything is right on track.”
He says the baby is due June 12.

Thomas Beatie also spoke to Walters about Susan’s birth, which was not via Caesarean section. He was in labor for 40 hours and wife Nancy cut the umbilical cord.

Barbara Walter’s show “What Is a Man, What Is a Woman? Journey of a Pregnant Man” will be on ABC Friday at 10 p.m. ET.
