Transgender man who gave birth to baby boy angry at medics for calling him 'mother'
Briefly News previously reported on a 37-year-old man named Bennett Kaspar-Williams, 37, from Los Angeles, who lashed out at medics for referring to him as a mom after he gave birth to his son.
The man said that he realised he was a man 10 years ago but did not begin his transition until three years later. He then met the love of his life, Malik, and they got married in 2019.
According to a report in Daily Mail, the couple decided that they wanted to have children and weighed the options available to them. This meant Bennett stopping the testosterone hormone therapy he'd been on for several years to enable his ovaries to function.
