Welcome to 2017, America: A transgender woman from Oregon — living as a gay “man” married to another man — announced her pregnancy on Wednesday to the world.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, Portland residents Biff Chaplow and his transgender partner, Trystan Reese, are expecting their second child after miscarrying their first in 2016. The couple announced the news on a podcast as part of a series entitled “Accidental Gay Parents” on The Longest Shortest Time website.
In discussing their news on the podcast, Reese talked about how surprising it was to get pregnant not long after a previous miscarriage.
“I randomly grabbed one of the pee tests and they came back positive and I was like ‘oh my God, this is actually happening again,’” Reece said.
Chaplow and Reese — who are expecting a boy in July — are married and already parents to two children they adopted previously in 2015.
Despite the fact that Reese continues to make strides toward becoming a man, Women’s Health Magazine reported that she had stopped taking her testosterone supplements in an effort to attempt another pregnancy.
Learning the baby is a boy has become a bit of a joke for them.
“Our baby has been diagnosed male,” Reese said. “That’s my own little joke in our family — diagnosis: male.”
