The world's second pregant man, Scott Moore, is set to give birth to a baby boy next month, according to reports.

Moore and his partner, Thomas, were both born as women, but have undergone surgery to change their physical orientation.

Scott (born Jessica), 30, and Thomas (born Laura), also 30, live as a married couple in California.

The two met at a 2005 support group for transgender men and have been together since 2007. Thomas has two kids, Gregg, 12, and Logan, 10, from a relationship he had with a female partner who later passed away.

Scott, who was born a girl called Jessica, first realised he wanted to be a man when he hit puberty aged 11.

His parents paid £4,600 for Scott to have his 36DDD chest removed.

"I was very depressed and my parents realised it was the only thing that could help me," said Scott.

"I opted not to have a penis because I couldn't afford it and I didn't think the results were very good - it had nothing to do with wanting children because back then I didn't think I'd ever have them."

Thomas began his transition aged 19, although he knew from the age of four that he wanted to be a man.

Thomas, who used to be called Laura, legally changed his name in 1998. He started taking testosterone in 1999 and had his 44GG breasts removed at the UCSF medical centre in San Francisco in 2004. Later that year he had a hysterectomy and a penis made out flesh from his thigh.

Scott was inseminated with the sperm of a male friend and fell pregnant in June 2009.

‘We were so happy we did what all gay men do when they get excited - we went shopping,’ Thomas said.

The couple have dismissed concerns that Miles might be teased at school, saying they are confident they can deal with it.

‘We've been through it already,’ Thomas said.

‘My son Logan was bullied but now he just says to teasers: “You may have a problem with my two dads but I don't so you're not hurting me”.’

Thomas said: ‘We want to show the world that trans-families can be healthy, loving and nurturing.’
