Thomas Beatie, the transgender man who made headlines as the so-called "pregnant man," gave birth today to a healthy baby girl, ABC News has learned.

Transgender male Thomas Beatie has delivered a healthy pregnant girl. Beatie became pregnant through artificial insemination.

Born a woman, Beatie, 34, who had his breasts surgically removed and legally changed his gender from female to male, leaped to prominence around the world in April when the wispy bearded man revealed he was pregnant.

Despite years of taking hormones and living outwardly as a man, Beatie maintained that he retained his female sex organs because he intended one day to get pregnant.
