A pregnant man has revealed on Lorraine that he’s been getting DEATH threats over his decision to have a child. Former Asda worker, Hayden Cross, was born a woman but began transitioning when he was 17-years-old.
While he is now legally male, Hayden stopped his transition so he could get pregnant and have a biological child before it was too late.
“It’s quite scary, but I’m happy I’m going to have a biological kid. I wanted my eggs frozen. Not everyone wants kids when they’re young,” Hayden told Lorraine.
It’s not been an easy ride for the 20-year-old, who claims to have been threatened over his decision to have a child.
“I’ve had death threats, and people threatening to beat me up. I’ve taken a year out of my treatment for this.
Admitting that he felt a little too young to be having a child, he revealed that a stranger came to his home and donated sperm.
“Basically I found a sperm donor on Facebook. I found someone on there, spoke to them for a few days and went from there.
“They came to my house, came into a cup and then I did it myself. I don’t even know their name,” he explained.
“I’ve always wanted to be able to have my own family. My mum’s been really supportive.
Speaking about his hopes for the future, Hayden added: “When the baby grows, I’ll sit it down and explain and talk to it. I want it to know, I hope it will be open minded like me.”
