A 25-year-old Spaniard, in the midst of a sex-change, is expecting twins at the end of September.
Ruben Noe Coronado interrupted the process of changing genders so he could keep his female reproductive organs and give birth, London’s Daily Telegraph reported Monday.
Coronado is now pregnant with twin boys after undergoing artificial insemination.
After the twins are born, Coronado said he plans to complete the gender reassignment surgery and bring up the boys with his partner, 43-year-old Esperanza Ruiz.
Cornonado is the first Spanish transsexual to become pregnant and it is thought he will become the world's first transsexual father of twins, if everything goes as planned, according to the report.
Coronado told the Telegraph he went public with his story "so people start to see a transsexual pregnancy as normal.”
Last year, U.S. transsexual Thomas Beatie made headlines around the world after giving birth to a girl. Beatie is due to give birth to a second child in June.
