An Ecuadorian politician is celebrating as her husband is set to give birth to their child.
The transgender couple has gone through a lot in the past few years as they struggle to live a happy life in a world that has taken time to accept them.
The transition from a man into a woman
Sharing the news on social media, Diane Marie Rodriguez, who transitioned from a man into a woman, celebrated her husband Zack, who transitioned from a woman into a man.
The two have never had gender reassignment surgery, hence they can conceive a baby like any other couple without medical intervention.
Diane shared several photos from their gender reveal party as she confirmed the two were expecting a girl and noted they are delighted.
"Zack is pregnant with me. He will be a daddy and I will be a mommy to a girl. Yesterday we did the gender reveal. We are happy."
Addressing gender-based racism
The politician also questioned the hate she received in her comment section, reminding people that God was against hatred and those using His name against them were wrong.
Diane is also a parent to a boy who she welcomed with her partner in the same way back in 2016. She started transitioning as a teenager and faced rejection from her family and community due to her stand.
She, however, continued airing her truth and is one of the biggest LGBTQ activists in South America.
