It’s a boy for Thomas Beatie, better known as the Pregnant Man.

Beatie, who was born a woman and then underwent a sex change operation, gained international attention last year when it was revealed he had become perhaps the first legally transgender male to get pregnant. A photo of the bearded Beatie with a pregnant belly became a sensation.

Just months after he gave birth to a daughter, Beatie told ABC’s Barbara Walters he was pregnant again. ABC now reports that Beatie, 35, and wife Nancy, 46, welcomed their second child, a healthy boy, early Tuesday morning.

Sources tell ABC it was a “natural childbirth” and that Nancy will nurse their son, as she did with daughter Susan.
