Thomas Beatie - known around the country at The Pregnant Man because he's undergone numerous gender reassignment procedures, yet has also given birth on two occasions - revealed this week that he and wife Nancy are separated.
Beatie made the announcement during a taped interview on the syndicated TV show The Doctors. It will air May 9.
"Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we're going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we're separated," Beatie says on the series.
The couple rose to prominence in 2007 after Thomas legally changed his status to male... and then became pregnant. He recently completed the transformation, adding during the interview that the final surgery was a success, not that his wife would know it.
"Nancy hasn't seen the new me yet," says the 38-year old.
