Transgendered man 5 months pregnant

I watched this story yesterday, the announcers had a great deal of difficulty describing the "sex" of the individual, in the leadin to the story.

They showed a picture of a "male" with a "large belly" and mentioned photoshop

Transgendered man 5 months pregnant, he says

A transgendered Oregon man says he is five months pregnant and expecting a baby girl.

Thomas Beatie told The Advocate, a magazine devoted to gay, bisexual and transgendered issues, that he made the choice because his wife can't have children.

Beatie, who writes he is "legally male and legally married," said his wife Nancy had a hysterectomy because of severe endometriosis.

Sterilization is not a requirement for gender reassignment, allowing him to keep his female reproductive organs, he said. Beatie did have breast reduction surgery and testosterone therapy, but stopped taking the hormone after deciding to become pregnant.

Interesting story, however I have to assume that in this case the transgender transformation did not include genital reconstruction... only breast reduction and hormonal therapy (as described).
