Hayden Cross, Britain’s first transgender man to give birth to a baby.
Hayden Cross made headlines around the world when he announced he was pregnant by a sperm donor – three years after becoming legally male through gender reassignment.
And now the 21-year-old, was delighted to welcome his newborn daughter, Trinity-Leigh, he said: “She’s my angel. She’s perfect in every way.”
His family confirmed his Trinity-Leigh was born by caesarean on June 16 at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
This makes Hayden, of Gloucester, the first transgender man to give birth in the UK.
The cost of gender reassignment is £29,000 per patient, including support and surgery.
But Hayden – who was born Paige – was also desperate to have a baby, The Sun reports.
Before completing his transition he asked the NHS to freeze his eyes in a £4,000 process in the hope he might have children years later – but health chiefs refused.
Hayden has no contact with the child’s biological dad and does not know his name.
He added: “I found the donor on the Internet. I looked on Facebook for a group and found one – it’s been shut down now. I didn’t have to pay.
“The man came to my house, he passed me the sperm in a pot andI did it via a syringe.
“I found out I was pregnant two weeks after the sperm was inserted. It was mixed emotions.”
Meanwhile, Hayden told TV host Lorraine Kelly he has received death threats after news of his pregnancy broke.
He said: “I have had some good reactions but I’ve had some really bad reactions.
“A lot of people don’t really understand the situation, and I understand that, but I just want people to be aware that there are people who do need help and that are like me and haven’t got anybody to support them and need support.”
