(Newser) – When Scott Moore gives birth to a baby boy next month, he'll become the world's second man to do so. Moore, 30, was born a girl named Jessica, and met his husband Thomas (born Laura) in a support group for transgendered men. "We want to show the world that trans-families can be healthy, loving, and nurturing," Thomas told the Daily Telegraph.

"We know some people will criticize us, but we are blissfully happy and not ashamed," Scott said. The world's first pregnant man, Oregon's Thomas Beatie, who gave birth in 2008, was like Moore a born female who had undergone surgery and hormone treatments to alter his sex.
