Scott Moore, Second Pregnant Man, 16 When He Became Man

Scott Moore, the second pregnant man to make big news in recent times, knew all his life he was meant to be a man, even though he was born as a woman, but it wasn't until he was 16 that he was able to start making that transition.

When explaining how he became this way, Scott Moore says "I was always a tomboy but when I started to develop breasts I realised I'd been born in the wrong body. When I told my family, they thought I was crazy, but they gradually realised I was serious and allowed me to start taking male hormones when I was 16 years old." Now years later, he is able to be his true self while also still being able to have a child. Some may look down on this as weird, but I think it is a great triumph that Scott is able to live this way and make it work.

Scott and his partner Thomas are both transgender males, who met each other in a transgender support group, where other men like them get help for dealing with all the difficulty that comes with that identity. By all indications they have built a very strong and stable relationship together, and will probably make excellent parents after all the courage and togetherness it took to make it this far as a couple.

Scott Moore and his partner, Thomas, were both born as females and underwent surgery and hormone treatments to transform their sex. Scott, who is 30, is legally married to Thomas, with whom he lives in California, because he still has his female birth certificate. Scott and Thomas met in 2005 at a support group meeting for their fellow transgender men. Thomas began his transition aged 19, although he knew from the age of four that he wanted to be a man. Thomas, who used to be called be the name Laura, legally changed his name in 1998.
