A transgender couple have revealed they are expecting their first baby in a month's time. Scott Moore, the second 'pregnant man' to go public, is due to give birth in February, with husband Thomas by his side. They have already named their upcoming baby 'Miles'.

The couple were both born girls and have undergone surgery to transform their sex. Scott, 30, retained his female reproductive organs. The two were able to legally get married because Scott still has a female birth certificate.

The couple have dismissed concerns that their child might be teased at school, saying they are confident they can deal with it. "We know some people will criticize us but we are blissfully happy and not ashamed," Scott said.

The couple now lives in California, where they already have two children – Gregg, 12, and Logan, 10 – who Thomas had with a previous female partner.

The first pregnant transsexual man is Thomas Beatie, 34, from Oregon, who made headlines around the world in 2008 when he gave birth to a girl.
