3. Chris Rehs-Dupin
Chris got pregnant because his wife was struggling to do so despite multiple efforts with a sperm donor and fertility treatments.
I’m not sure if I didn’t want to or if I thought I wasn’t supposed to, being transgender, and so of course I was very nervous about it and worried what people would say. The first time we let ourselves get excited about it was when he went to see the midwife and got to hear her heartbeat. There was so much joy and excitement and it became real. I’m very proud to say that I did it.
Later, inspired by her husband, his wife successfully conceived and birthed their second child.

Fernando, his wife Diane, and their baby.
We are the same as other families. Even though we might not have the same rights, we're the same.
5. Scott Moore
Scott Moore and his husband Thomas were both transgender men who had adopted two children before becoming pregnant. While Thomas has had a hysterectomy, Scott hesitated though it was not originally because he thought he would ever want to carry a baby:
I opted not to have a penis because I couldn't afford it and I didn't think the results were very good - it had nothing to do with wanting children because back then I didn't think I'd ever have them.
