A British man has put his gender conversion on hold to have a baby after finding a sperm donor on social media and is expected to become the first UK male to give birth.
Hayden Cross, 20, has been living the life of a man for the past three years and joined a sperm donation group on the social network when he was told he would not be able to freeze his eggs during his hormonal gender transitioning.
Cross’ complete transformation into a man was paused after the UK's state-funded National Health Service (NHS) refused to carry out a 4,000-pounds process to freeze his eggs - which he hoped would enable him to have children in the future.
He is now four months pregnant and may be the first British man ever to give birth, reports The Sun.

Cross said he felt pressured into getting pregnant before completing his gender transition, as hormone treatment would have set irreversible changes into motion.
The former supermarket worker instead found a sperm donor via Facebook and, now successfully pregnant, is set to give birth in a few months,
In September, a transgender couple became the first in South America to have a child together.
