Transgender Man Told He Couldn’t Get Pregnant Welcomes a Son

Being transgender comes with certain limitations, and one of these is being able to conceive children.

But one transgender man defied the odds by conceiving and giving birth to a very healthy baby boy.

Wyley Simpson, a twenty-eight-year-old transgender man from Texas, was regularly undergoing testosterone therapy and because of this, it was warned that he may never conceive a child.

Wyley, who still has female genitals, is engaged to Stephen Gaeth and the pair initially didn’t feel ready for parenthood… until Wyley discovered that he was pregnant.

“I was nervous. I was very emotional, I started crying. I didn’t know what to do,” he said in an interview. “I was already worried as this was my first pregnancy.”

“But I was also nervous because I had to deal with a lot of stigma behind me being a pregnant man.”

“Alongside receiving rude comments from other people, the pregnancy took a lot for me emotionally,” he went on to say.

“Having gone through the transitioning process since I was 21 years old, having a physical baby bump was something so feminine that it messed with my head.”

Wyley gave birth to their son, Rowan, in September 2018 via an emergency C-section.

“Once my physical bump had disappeared and I was able to take my hormones again, I felt good about everything,” he said about fatherhood.

“Myself and Stephan suddenly turned into a gay couple with a baby, as opposed to me being a pregnant man.”
