(Newser) – Pregnant Man is no one-baby wonder. Thomas Beatie gave birth to his second child this morning, reports ABC News. Beatie, who was born a woman but is now legally a man, catapulted to fame last year when images of his pregnant belly surfaced. Though he's had some surgery toward his gender shift, Beatie has been able to give birth because he kept his female sex organs. Both Beatie and the new baby boy are healthy, and Beatie's wife expects to begin breastfeeding soon.
