As the divorce between “pregnant man” Thomas Beattie and his estranged wife Nancy Roberts heats up, footage has emerged apparently showing a bust up between the pair.
The video, exclusively featured on TMZ, features Nancy lying motionless on the ground while one of the couple’s three children crawls over her. According to the website Nancy is “passed out”.
Nancy suddenly bolts up and drags their daughter into another room as the child wails. She then seizes a laptop and begins threatening to break it.
Thomas can be heard pleading: “Stop it, stop it Nancy” as she dumps the machine into a playpen, before rushing outside with it, bashing it against a rock and eventually hurling it into the pool.
Thomas begins to weep, begging her “don’t do it, don’t do it”, while one of their children looks on and repeats the plea.
The footage was revealed after Thomas reportedly bought his new girlfriend a diamond ring.
Radar Online claims Amber Nicholas is smitten with Thomas and “is not afraid to brag about everything – including their sex life.”
A source said: “Amber's wearing a big diamond ring that Thomas bought her on her right hand, but plans to move it over to her left hand as soon as his divorce goes through."

Amber, 42, is the director at Tutor Time daycare centre, which Thomas and Nancy’s children used to attend.
Last month Thomas made claims he had been physically attacked by Nancy several times, including an episode which saw him struck in the crotch.
According to divorce papers seen by TMZ, in February 2012, Thomas claims he tried to stop his “visibly intoxicated” wife from driving their children to nursery.
The 38-year-old said he dialled 911 and claimed of Nancy: “She hit me in the crotch”.
The papers also claim Thomas was woken by Nancy at 2am in January 2012 by a punch in the face. He said: “This night, like every night [Nancy] hovers over me, threatening me with physical and emotional abuse.”
Nancy has denied the allegations and has filed her own documents claiming Thomas abused her.
A judge had issued a restraining order banning Nancy from contact with Thomas or their children, aside from three supervised visits a week.
The couple are due back in court next week to continue discussing custody and child support.
News of the split emerged with Thomas making an announcement during filming for The Doctors.
The 38-year-old admitted: "Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated."
Thomas, who recently underwent his final round of gender-reassignment surgery, said his wife had not yet seen his new genitals, People Magazine reports.
He revealed: "Nancy hasn't seen the new me yet."
Thomas, bearded and breastless, happily showed off his bulging belly to the press during his three pregnancies.
The former model, who spent the first two decades of his life as Tracy Lagondin, had retained his female reproductive organs despite being legally declared a man in 2002.
During an earlier appearance on The Doctors, Thomas described the strain he suffered while trying to conceive and discussed his plans to have a hysterectomy.
When he was first pregnant, Thomas told the media: "Despite the fact that my belly is growing with a new life inside me, I am stable and confident being the man that I am."
