A transgender man has given birth to a baby five years after having his first child while still living as a woman.

He is the first man in history to ever give birth living as both a man as well as a woman. Grayson was born while Sullivan was living as a woman before transitioning.

'Some people have been perturbed by the idea of me giving birth, but I don't engage or respond to them, ' Kaci told DailyMailTV.

Sullivan says he did receive lots of attention when pregnant, including some abuse online, but he wanted to break the stigma around trans parenthood. "If I see those comments I just get rid of them", Sullivan said.

"They will try and find our safe space and violate it with their opinions, but they are jerks", he said. I don't waste time or energy giving them anything in return'.

Sullivan said that he is committed to raising his child "gender-neutral" before he or she can make the decision him or herself.

'I don't see pregnancy as inherently feminine, and because I don't susbscribe to make-believe gender roles, I wasn't threatened by the idea of pregnancy'.

'I daydreamed nearly constantly about what it would be like to be a boy, puberty was traumatising for me and I cried the first time I had to put on a bra, ' he said.

He met his first husband at 19 and tied the knot in 2010, but by his early twenties was battling severe depression and began to drink excessively. When Kaci fell pregnant with his first child in July 2011, he hoped becoming a mother would make him feel more feminine, but was left in a dark place when it didn't. "Immediately I loved him like I had never loved anything or anyone and I felt such a surge of duty to him", Sullivan said.

Three months after Grayson was born, Kaci came out as transgender.

'I felt like a ton of bricks had been lifted off my chest when I admitted it to myself'.

Kaci's marriage ended after he came out and when he was 25 he started taking male hormones and underwent a double mastectomy.

Sullivan documented the journey with photos and a series of Facebook posts and a YouTube channel, My Trans Pregnancy, to create a resource for other transgender parents.
