'Pregnant man', Thomas Beatie, holding news conference after being denied divorce

Attorneys representing Thomas Beatie, the so-called 'Pregnant Man', will hold a news conference Tuesday.

Last week, Beatie's request for a divorce from his wife Nancy was rejected by a Maricopa County judge.

The Phoenix resident was born a woman and later changed his name and became a man. He also received a new birth certificate, social security number and passport.

Beatie married Nancy in Hawaii and in early 2003 became pregnant because Nancy couldn't have children.

The couple now has three children.

A judge rejected the divorce citing the marriage cannot be legally dissolved because it is not recognized in Arizona, calling it a same-sex marriage.

ABC15 will be at the news conference Tuesday. Check with abc15.com for the latest updates.
