MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – GMA News is reporting that Senator Chiz Escudero and his wife, actress Heart Evangelista are pregnant!
This makes Escudero the world’s first pregnant heterosexual man.
Previously, Thomas Beatie held the disinction as the world’s first pregnant male.
Beatie, a trans man, had gender reassignment surgery in March 2002 and became known as “The Pregnant Man” after he became pregnant through artificial insemination in 2007. Beatie chose to be pregnant because his wife Nancy was infertile, doing so with cryogenic donated sperm.
With Escudero’s pregnancy, the Philippines adds yet another listing in the Guinness Book of World Records.
