Spanish 'Man' To Give Birth to Twins

I hate to quibble over minor details, but if it's giving birth it's not a man.

Just saying.
A Spanish man is set to become the first in the world to give birth to twins.

Transexual Ruben Noe Coronado, 25, is due to become a dad at the end of September.

Ruben, born a woman called Stephanie, will bring the boys up with partner Esperanza Ruiz, 43.

The pair plan to marry before they become parents.

Bearded American Thomas Beattie made headlines round the world after giving birth to daughter Susan Juliette last June.

The 35-year-old, born Tracy Lagondino, is expecting a second child with wife Nancy this summer.

Like Beattie, Ruben is officially a man but retained his female reproductive organs.

When doctors told girlfriend Esperanza, already a mother of two, that she could not have any more children, she and Ruben decided he should try to become pregnant with donor sperm after undergoing fertility treatment.

He plans to give birth at a hospital in Barcelona, where the couple recently moved from Malaga due to family problems.

Once he becomes a dad he will continue sex change surgery interrupted to enable him to fall pregnant and give birth.
