Britain’s first pregnant man has given birth to a girl, the Daily Mail reported…

Hayden Cross was born a girl and was legally male when he paused transgender hormone treatment to conceive using a sperm donor he had met on Facebook.

The former Asda worker, 21, made headlines around the world and provoked an ethical debate when he announced his pregnancy in January – thought to have been the first case of its kind in the UK.

His family confirmed he had given birth to a girl, Trinity-Leigh Louise Cross, on June 16, and said both were healthy and doing well. It means Mr Cross has become the first known transgender man to give birth in Britain.

The birth was registered at Gloucester Register Office on Wednesday. The birth certificate has Hayden Cross listed as the mother but there is no father registered on the document.
