An American transgender man who gave birth to a child and breastfed him now wants his son to see him as a dad.
Sabastion Sparks, 24, is married to Angel, a transgender woman who was born as a man.
CNN reported on Friday that Mr. Sparks was born as a woman but began transitioning five years ago. The process felt more complete last month when he had surgery to remove his breasts.
“With Father’s Day approaching, Sabastion finds himself thinking about gender roles and what it means to be a dad. He wants Jaxen, their 20-month-old son, to have as normal a childhood as possible,” CNN said.
As a teen growing up in Locust Grove, Georgia, Sabastion felt different. He would sit on the school bus and think how much he hated having breasts, and hoped that one day he would save enough money to have them removed.
“By the time Sabastion met Angel five years ago at a convention for transgender people, he identified as a man. Angel, 33, was designated male at birth but had transitioned years earlier,” CNN said in a full report.
