Kerala: The transgender couple is expecting their first child. Ziya and Zahad from Kerala’s Kozhikode, who have been living together for the past three years, shared the good news on Instagram on Wednesday.
While sharing the post, they have captioned it, “Though I was not a woman by birth or by my body, I had the feminine dream inside me to hear a baby calling me ‘mother’….It has been three years since we were together. Like my dream of becoming a mother, he (Zahad) has a dream of becoming a father, and today a life of eight months is moving in his belly with his full consent.”
Zahad was born a woman who became a man, while Ziya was born a man who became a woman. As his transition from a woman to a man was put on hold for the kid and his uterus and several other organs were left in, Zahad conceived the child from Ziya.
“Time has brought us together. It has been three years. Like my dream of mother, his dream of father and a desire of our own brought us to one thought. Today 8 months old Jeevan is moving in his belly with full consent……supporting the decisions we made to make our wishes come true,” Ziya wrote in another post caption, adding, “As far as we know India’s first TRAN’S MAN PREGNANCY”.

May god bless you always”, fourth person commented, “Congratulation dearsss!! stay happy and live long..God is with you.”
