SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- With the world abuzz of the news of his second pregnancy, Thomas Beatie tells the definitive story of his first pregnancy this Tuesday on Discovery Health. Discovery Health presents the only documentary featuring professional footage of Thomas and his wife, Nancy, through the final weeks of his first pregnancy, the landmark birth of their first child and their eventual return home. PREGNANT MAN premieres Tuesday, November 18, at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Discovery Health. In addition, an encore presentation of PREGNANT MAN will air the following day, Wednesday, November 19, at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
PREGNANT MAN provides the only all-access look inside the everyday household of America's most unconventionally conventional family. Originally born female, Thomas, 34, underwent multiple medical treatments to biologically, socially and legally re-identify as a man. After marrying, the couple decided to start a family, but Nancy was unable to have children. Faced with this reality, Thomas made the unprecedented decision to suspend his testosterone treatments in hopes of becoming pregnant. Following successful artificial insemination, he gave birth to a healthy baby girl in June 2008.
Since announcing Thomas' pregnancy on national television, the Beaties
have become a worldwide media obsession. Seeking to satisfy an insatiable
public curiosity, journalists from countless countries have requested
interviews and pictures of the family. The Beaties have ignited nonstop
conversation and interest among everyday people from all walks of life --
some extremely supportive of the family, and others outraged at what they
interpret as disregard for familial and societal
