Hayden Cross: The second British man to give birth to a child
After Scott Parker, 23, in April this year, became the first British man to give birth to a child, another man from Britain, 21-year-old Hayden Cross gave birth to a baby girl last month, becoming the second transgender man from the UK to bear a child.

The girl was born on June 16 at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

After the birth of his daughter Trinity-Leigh via Caesarean section, Hayden Cross now plans to complete his gender reassignment surgery soon.

You must have heard that only a woman can get pregnant, but here, a man not only got pregnant but also gave birth to a healthy baby girl.

However, the record for being the world's first transgender man to become pregnant is held by American transgender man Thomas Beatie, who had become pregnant for the first time through artificial insemination in 2007. Arizona man Beatie has since given birth to three children. After having a partial sex change from a woman to a man in 2002, Beatie had decided to keep his internal reproductive organs intact to have biological children in the future.

As per officials records of the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, the girl nicknamed Angel was conceived after Cross found a sperm donor on Facebook and got himself artificially inseminated.

Hayden, who was born as a girl named Paige, and by profession is a super market worker, put his full gender transformation on hold after state funded National Health Service (NHS) denied to carry out a process to freeze his eggs.

Since he could not get his eggs frozen for having children in the future, Cross decided to have a baby himself. However, now after the birth of the child, Cross told The Sun that he would again start taking testosterone to resume his gander transition as he did not intent to breastfeed.
