A 25-year-old transsexual man is pregnant with twins.
The Jaen resident has interrupted hormone treatments and postponed plans for a sex change operation in order to have a baby.
Born Estefania Coronado Jimenez, Ruben had already had his breasts removed when he decided to try for a baby as his 43-year-old lover was too old. Jimenez was able to apply for fertility treatments and artificial insemination as his female name still appears on his identity card.
However, he had to email 158 fertility clinics before he found one in Barcelona willing to prepare his uterus for insemination by donated sperm.
Jimenez is the first transsexual in the world to fall pregnant with twins.
He plans to complete his sex change following the birth of the babies in September.
