A transgender couple from Georgia, USA, are looking forward to telling their children about their pasts – and how it was their father, not their mother, who gave birth to them.
Nick and Bianca Bowser married each other in 2011, and decided to put their gender reassignment surgery on hold so they could spend the money on raising a family.
This meant that Nick, who had spent seven years previously living as a man, had to use his female reproductive organs to carry and give birth to his sons, with Bianca providing the sperm.
The couple now have two children, Kai and Pax and say they are looking forward to explaining the twist to their sons’ ‘where do babies come from?’ story.
‘We’re different, but we do the same things that everybody else does; we’re the same type of family everybody else is,’ Nick explained, speaking to ABC News.
‘Our children do not see us as transgender people, we are mommy and daddy.’
Bianca said she didn’t know when or how she would tell her children about who gave birth to them, but she and Nick are prepared to talk to Kai and Pax, explaining their unique situation gradually as they ask questions.
‘I mean, that’s when we tell them sometimes men have babies, and sometimes mommies can’t have babies,’ Nick said.
‘We’re telling them the truth, and I think that’s the most important thing, and in a way that they can understand.’
