Yes, you heard it right this British ‘man’ gave birth to a baby girl, with the help of the sperm donor he found on Facebook. Read the article to know more about this crazy story.
Hayden Cross has made history.
Hayden Cross is the the first British man to give birth to a baby girl making an history of his own. The 21 year old Hayden said of daughter Trinity-Leigh: “She’s my angel.”
Hayden, born Paige, gave birth by caesarean.
Hayden became the first British man to give birth as he put his transition on hold to fall pregnant by a sperm donor. This excited to be a parent said, “She’s perfect in every way. She is so good. I’m so lucky.”
Hayden now plans to return to complete his gender realignment.
Hayden now a proud father, was born a girl, Paige, 21 years ago. Hayden has been living legally as a man for more than three years and taking male hormones, giving him facial hair and a deep voice.
You will shocked to know that the cost of gender reassignment is £29,000 per patient, including support and surgery. Hayden was eager for his surgery but he also was desperate to have a baby, so before completing his transition he asked the NHS to freeze his eggs in a £4,000 process in the hope he might have children years later.
The health chiefs refused.
Hayden’s pregnancy was revealed in January, to which Hayden, from Gloucester, said: “I faced the prospect of not becoming the man I’m supposed to be, physically, or a dad. So I didn’t feel like I had any choice but to have a baby now then get back to transitioning.”
Hayden further explains….
“In September I got pregnant by a sperm donation. I found the donor on the internet. I looked on Facebook for a group and found one — it’s been shut down now. I didn’t have to pay. The man came to my house, he passed me the sperm in a pot and I did it via a syringe.” said Hayden
Hayden Cross has no contact with the child’s biological dad.
Hayden said at that time, “I found I was pregnant two weeks after the sperm was inserted. It was mixed emotions. I was happy but I also knew it would be backtracking on my transition. It’s like I have given myself one thing, but taken away something else. It’s a very female thing to carry a baby and it goes against everything I feel in my body. I was finally starting to become myself and become a man physically — but now my body is going in the opposite direction.”
Hayden’s mum also gave birth to a boy last month.
Hayden used to work for Asda and in a clothes shop and he aims to find the job once the baby is born. Hayden is also a Man United fan he told us, “I want the baby to have the best of everything. I will be the greatest dad.”
He insisted: “I will go back to Asda or something. I will work anywhere. I’ll put the baby in childcare so I can provide for it. I want to save lots of money so I can send the baby to private school. I don’t mind what the kid does when older. As long as they are happy and respectful, I don’t care. I just want to make sure that they have the best opportunities in life. I will be proud no matter what.”
Hayden ruled out breastfeeding.
He said, “I hate my boobs. I want to have the child and get back to full transitioning.” Hayden later told Lorraine Kelly on her ITV show: “I’ve had some good reactions and bad ones. I’ve had death threats, people threatening to beat me up. But a lot of people don’t really understand the situation. I want them to be more aware.” Hayden also says after the news went live he received death threats, lost his job and went broke, also his family was disgusted of him.
