They are the couple who made history last year when the transgender ‘father’ fell pregnant by the trans ‘mother’.
And now, four months after giving birth to their first child, Fernando Machado – who was born a woman – and his partner Diane Rodriguez – who was born a man – have revealed they want to expand their brood.
The new parents, from Ecuador, have opened up about life with their new baby after becoming the first transgender couple to fall pregnant in South America.
They have not yet announced the name of the newborn baby – but the 16-week-old is affectionately referred to as Caraote – which means ‘the snail’.
‘We are the same as other families. Even though we might not have the same rights, we’re the same,’ Mr Machado, who gave birth in June, told the BBC.
‘We don’t have a name yet – or rather we do – we are just waiting to announce it.’
Ms Rodriguez, who was born male – as Luis – spoke about how she never thought she would know the joy of being a parent.
