So when I first read about a trangender man named Thomas Beatie allegedly being five months pregnant on http://www.vibe.com/, I have to say I didn't really believe it. Especially since they had video footage from a local news channel that debunked the claim homeboy/girl originally made in The Advocate. But now, Mama Oprah herself is about to get involved!!!
Apparently Tommy Boy is very much knocked up and planning to give birth to a little girl in July. The Big O interviewed dude's wife (yes he's married and no, she can't get pregnant), the couple's doctor, family, etc. MY GOD. Is this what it takes to get on Oprah's couch nowadays?
PS Not for nothing, doesn't this story kinda feel like it should be on Geraldo or Jerry Springer instead? I guess Oprah ain't all that damn changed from the early days, huh...
Here's the story on Rueters:
