Mazel tov — it’s a boy! Not the baby, but the person giving birth.

That’s right. If the news broken by Yediot Ahronot is correct, a man is to have a baby.

Apparently, a 24-year-old Israeli who had a female-to-male sex change operation went to a hospital on Sunday and told doctors that he’s pregnant. According to the report, he sports a goatee and is married to a man.

He is reportedly had a breast removal operation in the U.S., but left his female reproductive organs intact, and in now due in two months.

“Everyone was in shock,” a patient who was in the emergency room when the man walked in told Yediot. “He looked like a man in every way and insisted that medical staff address him as a male.”
