‘Pregnant man’ sentenced for stalking ex
PHOENIX — A transgender man in Arizona who was accused of stalking his estranged wife has been sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation.
Thomas Beatie pleaded guilty in October to one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct after being arrested last year for stalking.
Authorities said Beatie installed a GPS tracking device on his wife’s car and then monitored where she was going.
Beatie made headlines across the world as the “pregnant man.” Beatie was born female but underwent the first of his gender-reassignment surgeries in 2001.
He married Nancy Beatie in 2003 in Hawaii. His wife was unable to conceive children and since he still had female reproductive organs, he was artificially inseminated and became pregnant.
Beatie gave birth to his first child in 2008 and had two more by 2011 when he and his wife had already moved to Arizona.
The couple sought a divorce a few years later.
