Hayden Cross had managed to make headlines across the world earlier this year when he made a formal public statement that he was expectant by a sperm donor. He gave birth to a girl by caesarean on 16th of June 2017 at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. The 21-year-old man has turned out to be the first in Britain to give birth after he put his sex conversion on hold to get weighty by a sperm donor.
Cross told The Sun that his offspring Trinity-Leigh is his “angel”. He had been living officially as a man for 3 years and was before now part-way through hormonal treatment to convert to a man from a woman. But the complete conversion was stopped after the UK’s state-funded National Health Service (NHS) turned down to carry out a £4,000 process to ice up his eggs – which he thought would allow him to have kids in the future.
He was a supermarket worker managed to find a sperm donor through Facebook and became effectively pregnant. “She’s perfect in every way…she is so good. I’m so lucky,” Cross said. After giving birth Cross decides to get back to complete his gender realignment. The proud father himself was born a girl named Paige, some 21 years ago.
Cross, from Gloucester, had said previously, “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.”
“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,” Cross told. He used to work for Asda and was also employed in a clothes shop, makes up his mind to find a job once the baby turns one.
Gender conversion treatment costs the NHS on an average £29,000 for each patient. Thomas Beatie was the first man to give birth in the US in the year 2008. Born as a woman, he had a half-done sex transition but reserved his womb and was able to conceive.
