When this wife struggled to fall pregnant with her first baby her husband, a transgender man, stepped up and tried to get pregnant too.

Chris Rehs-Dupin and his wife Amy, had been trying for a long time to conceive their first baby, but after Amy experienced five failed conceptions with donor sperm they decided to change tactics.

‘After a lot of thought and emotion, we switched to Chris,’ explains Amy in a PA video, reports Essential Baby.

Chris admits it was a difficult choice to make.

‘I’m not sure if I didn’t want to or if I thought I wasn’t supposed to, being transgender, and of course I was very nervous about it and worried what people would say,’ he admits.

After a rocky road, the couple successfully fell pregnant with their first baby and a happy, healthy, Hayden was welcomed into the world.

‘There is nothing dainty about childbirth. It is real work. And I’m very, very proud to say that I did it,’ says Chris.

The couple have since welcomed Milo to their family, this time Amy fell pregnant.

It might have taken a journey to get there, but their dream family is now a reality.
