A while ago a pregnant man was a joke, not it is a reality. And another man got pregnant and is ready to deliver!
Back in 2008, a huge buzz in the media was raised the first transgender “Pregnant man”. His name was Thomas Beatie. He even managed to appear on Oprah’s documentary. Now we have the new Pregnant man from China.
This fellow’s name is Zhang Chan. This guy has a realistically looking pregnant belly, and he is 33 years old. However, his “pregnancy” started back in 2004 and lasted till this year. It’s kind of a long term for a baby to grow. The thing is the man is not pregnant but has a tumor inside of him.
It keeps on growing for so many years. Doctors did not risk operating him because such a surgery could threaten his life. The family of the “Pregnant Man” kept on saving the money for a costly operation. Chan’s surgery lasted for over 6 hours. Surely the guy was happy to get rid of his pregnant belly and now he is safe.
The tumor stopped the man from dating or marrying and no wonder why it did. Presently he is happy and healthy, and we wish him to stay like that for the rest of his life.
