The first British man to give birth has opened up on the struggles he experienced being pregnant.

Hayden Cross, 22, was born a girl named Paige, but despite living legally as a man for three years, decided to put his transition on hold in 2016 so he could fulfil his dream of becoming a parent.

But after giving birth to daughter Trinity Leigh in 2017, who is now 18 months old, Hayden has said the process was incredibly difficult — and wouldn’t advise other transgender people to go through the pain.

“It was really strange and there were a lot of emotions and a lot of feelings,” he said on UK TV chat show Lorraine.
