First pregnant man introduces his baby girl – but warns other not to do the same

Hayden Cross has introduced the world to his baby girl before warning others not to go through the same thing.

Hayden, 22, who was born Paige, paused his transition from female to male after the NHS would not freeze his eggs.

He decided to have a baby and became the first man ever to be pregnant, giving birth to Trinity-Leigh last year.

But he revealed to ITV’s Lorraine Kelly that it was a thoroughly difficult process both physically and mentally, and he would not advise others to do the same, especially without support.

He told Lorraine: "I didn’t think I was ready at the time, 100%, but now everything’s just went to plan and fell into place and we’re getting on great.

"It’s not something I wanted to go through – it was really strange… I wouldn’t advise anyone to do it because it was really hard. At first it was a new thing but now there’s a lot of support out there and now the NHS support people with this."

But despite a difficult time, he struggled with the idea of giving birth, and instead chose to have a C-section.

He continued: "I needed to have it as well but it was pretty straight forward if I’m honest."

Hayden also had support from his mum, who was going through pregnancy at the same time as him, meaning his younger brother and daughter were born just two days apart.

He said their relationship is "stronger now" after pregnancy, but he is still awaiting to have his bottom surgery after having his breasts removed last May.

Sadly, Trinity-Leigh didn’t take too much to the studio and cried a great deal, and was eventually removed from the stage and held by one of Hayden’s mates.

Lorraine airs weekdays at 8.30am on ITV.
