A story of a transsexual man who became pregnant and changed our overall psychology. Meet 19-year-old Henry Steinn, from Iceland, gives birth to baby girl after starting male hormone therapy to become a man.
Henry decided to go with a gender reassignment surgery in the year 2014. HE is planning to continue his transition once he stops feeding his baby girl, his first child with his partner. A transgender teen who started undergoing male hormone treatment discovered two months into the process that he was pregnant.
Henry Steinn, 19, had already started living as a man when he found out he was carrying his boyfriend Thorir Leo Petursson’s child . The couple Henry and his boyfriend Thorir were together since February last year, who have since welcomed a girl, had not planned the baby but were delighted to start a family together.
They have been dating since Valentine’s Day 2015 and had been friends for a long while before that, living together in the small community of Arskogssandur, in northern Iceland, which has just 200 residents.
He said: “Everyone around here knows of course about my life choices, and I’m pleased to say I haven’t experienced any prejudice so far.”
The baby was born via caesarean and Henry is breastfeeding, but plans to fully transition as soon as his child is weaned off breast milk.
Henry had told his family in October 2014 about his plans to have gender reassignment surgery and said although his mother was fine about it is father was a bit confused.

He said his dad was then more confused when he found out that his new son was going to have a baby.
He said: “I’ve never felt 100 percent male anyways but I feel so much better on this side of the spectrum that I’m going to continue with the treatment as soon as I can.
“It’s a good thing my boyfriend is bigger than me so I just borrowed his clothes. I did wear pregnancy trousers although I found their cut a bit too feminine for my taste, but I never wore those pregnancy dresses or tunicas.”
He added: “When the child starts making obvious choices about what she wants to wear, she will be free to choose where she wants to go.”
