'Pregnant Man' Goes Bankrupt But Still Planning Fourth Child

pregnant man Thomas Beattie The world's most famous pregnant man (yes, you did read that right!), Thomas Beatie, 37, and his wife Nancy Beatie, 48, have been forced to file for bankruptcy, less than a year after the birth of their third child.

Their family home in Bend, Oregon has been repossessed after last year's massive stock market crash wiped away the majority of their savings.

They are now struggling to pay their mortgage and relying on food stamps.
