(Newser) – “Pregnant Man” Thomas Beatie this week shows off his gender-bending miracle, Susan Juliette, in People magazine, which Gawker reports forked over $300,000 for the first pix. Since Beatie had his breasts removed, wife Nancy drew breast-feeding duty via hormonally induced lactation, they tell People.

The transgendered former beauty-pageant contestant came through a 40-hour labor undaunted: "When Susan finally came out, it was like in slow motion. I was full of wonder," says Beatie. And there might be something to letting the guys in on the action: "I weigh two pounds less than I did before I got pregnant," he crows. "And I don't have a single stretch mark!"
