Pregnant man to hit Oprah with ultrasound

Scans will prove bun in Oregon transgender oven

The Oregon man who was born a woman, had his breasts removed as part of a gender reassignment but retained his female reproductive organs and then got up the duff, much to the amazement of just about everyone, will prove he's pregnant by flashing some ultrasound scan proof at Oprah Winfrey on Thursday.

Thomas Beatie, of Bend, is legally a bloke and legally married to Nancy. His missus was unable to have kids due to a hysterectomy, so cue a donated-sperm conception in dad's intact womb.

The shock news broke back in March, but some unkind souls have since suggested the whole thing's a hoax. Accordingly, the happy couple will now set the record straight on US TV.

The Oprah Winfrey Show website promises the pair will "open up about the secret they've been hiding for months" and teases: "Thomas is 34, happily married and…pregnant. Our cameras capture it all - the ultrasound, inside the nursery and more. How is this possible?" ®
