23 December 2015 / 10 months 1 week ago

It is a situation rather unique for this transgender couple. 

According to Mirror via AsianTown, Diane Rodriguez is a 33-year-old a transwoman who used to be a man.

Her partner Fernando Machado, 22, a transman who used to be a woman... and is now pregnant.

Their dreams came true after they met on social media two years ago, and are now the first transgender couple in Ecaudor to have a baby.

Fernando, from Venezuela, is three months pregnant and moved to live with Diane in Ecuador after meeting her online.

Neither Diane or Fernando have undergone surgery during their gender reassignment process, so becoming pregnant was still possible.

Upon announcing their decision to become transgender, Fernando was supported by his loved ones after explaining that he didn't feel comfortable being a woman.

Diane said: "This was the wish of both of us and there was nothing biological or legal to stop us, so we decided to do it"

"We live as man and woman. I’m a transfeminine woman and Fernando is a transmasculine man.

"The process to get here was complex for each of us."
