– The UK's first pregnant man Hayden Cross vows to be the best dad he can be
Britain's first pregnant man Hayden Cross has revealed he received death threats after news of his pregnancy broke.
The 20-year-old, from Gloucester, was born a woman but three years ago began treatment to undergo gender transition. However, Hayden has had to put the process on hold so that he can have a baby as he claims the NHS refused to freeze his eggs for the future.
With the aid of a sperm donor he met on Facebook, Hayden is now four months pregnant, and has vowed to be the best father he can be.
Speaking about the public's reaction, Hayden told Lorraine: “I’ve had some good reactions but I’ve also had some bad ones. I’ve had death threats, I’ve had people threatening to beat me up but a lot of people don’t really understand the situation and I understand that.
He continued: "I want people to be more aware that there are people out there who do need help and that are like me and haven’t got anybody to support them and they need support.”
Hayden joined Lorraine on the sofa this morning to tell his extraordinary story.
