Transgendered Man Gives Birth To Baby Girl Thanks To Sperm Donor's Help

A man who was born a woman decided that he wanted to have a child of his own. With his female reproductive organs still intact, the man sought out a sperm donor and was able to bring a baby girl into the world. The birth is being celebrated as a first in the U.K.

Hayden Cross is the first British man to ever give birth. The 21-year-old welcomed a daughter, Trinity-Leigh, into the world by cesarean section.

“She’s perfect in every way,” said the beaming father to The Sun. “She is so good. I’m so lucky.”

Cross, who was born Paige, was in the process of transitioning from female to male, but he put the full transition on hold so that he could become a parent.

After giving birth, Cross now plans to resume gender reassignment procedures as soon as possible. Before deciding to have a baby, he had been living as a man for about three years. He'd been taking male hormones, which resulted in facial hair and a deeper voice.

Cross's procedure was being paid for by England's National Health Service at a price tag of $37,000, but before he went through with the final surgical transition he asked NHS to freeze his eggs. The procedure would cost another $5,000, and would enable Cross to become a parent in his later years.

NHS refused the egg freezing, so Cross decided to have kids now. "I faced the prospect of not becoming the man I’m supposed to be, physically, or a dad," he said. “So I didn’t feel like I had any choice but to have a baby now then get back to transitioning."

Cross found a willing donor on the internet via a Facebook group. The group has since been shut down. Cross says the anonymous donor went to his house and 'passed me the sperm in a pot'. Cross then used a syringe to insert it, and found out he was pregnant within two weeks.

"It was mixed emotions," he said. “I was happy but I also knew it would be backtracking on my transition. It’s like I have given myself one thing, but taken away something else. It’s a very female thing to carry a baby and it goes against everything I feel in my body. I was finally starting to become myself and become a man physically — but now my body is going in the opposite direction.”

The happy papa plans to be 'the greatest dad' and plans to look for a new job when the baby is one year old. Cross previously worked for a clothing shop.

“I’ll put the baby in childcare so I can provide for it. I want to save lots of money so I can send the baby to private school. I don’t mind what the kid does when older. As long as they are happy and respectful, I don’t care. I just want to make sure that they have the best opportunities in life. I will be proud no matter what.”
