Man claims he is pregnant

An Oregon man says he is five months along. How can that be?

Thomas Beatie writes in a gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender magazine, that he used to be a woman. He says that he had breast reduction surgery and took hormones to become a man. Here's the twist: Beatie says he kept his female reproductive organs.

He is reportedly going to have a girl.

Neighbors of Beatie and his wife, Nancy, say they haven't noticed any baby bump.

Beatie told a Oregon television station that he could not comment on his situation for a week and a half.

Could it all be a weird April Fool's joke? Neighbors outside Beatie's t-shirt printing business might think so. They are laughing at reports that he is going to give birth.

Some others around the world don't find it funny.
