The UK’s first pregnant transgender man has given birth to a baby girl.

Hayden Cross, 21, gave birth to Trinity-Leigh Louise Cross at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, on June 16.

He conceived the child after meeting a sperm donor on Facebook.

Mr Cross, who was born a girl, revealed he was pregnant in January and said he was halting his transition to a man because he wanted to have a child first.

He had chosen not to get his eggs frozen (so he could conceive after his transition) because the NHS would not pay the £4,000 cost.

His grandmother Pam Edgeworth made the announcement of the birth yesterday night and said both of them were doing well.

Mr Cross’ mother Christine Edgeworth also gave birth two days earlier to her fifth child.

Pam told Mailonline: ‘I’m delighted. I became a grandmother again and a great-grandmother within 48 hours. Both mothers and babies are well.’

But not everyone in Mr Cross’ family has backed his decision to have a child.

His uncle Sean Hodson said earlier this year: ‘I fear this child is going to grow up confused. It is confusing for me.

‘Hayden had a difficult upbringing and perhaps if her childhood had been more stable she wouldn’t be in this situation now.

‘I cannot get it into my head that she is changing from a girl to a boy.’

But Mr Cross was always sure about what he was doing and previously told The Sun on Sunday: ‘I faced the prospect of not becoming the man I’m supposed to be, physically, or a dad.

‘So I didn’t feel like I had any choice but to have a baby now then get back to transitioning.’

    I think this is beautiful at the end of the day she is still a woman giving life and just cause she is who she is does not mean her child will turn out the same her sexuality has nothing to do with the way she raises her child.
