BEND, OR (KPTV) -
He made headlines around the world and became known as "the pregnant man" - a transgender man who gave birth in Bend - and now an Arizona judge will decide if he can get a divorce and keep his children.
Beatie filed for divorce from his wife Nancy Beatie and they were in court this week in Arizona, according to TV station KTVK.
Thomas Beatie started life as a woman and had three children, but has been living as a man since the late '90s.
He first came into the public eye in 2007 when pictures of him, pregnant and bearded, made headlines.
He kept his reproductive organs when he had a sex change operation in 1998, the New York Daily News reported.
Beatie had been living in Bend with his wife and their three kids until death threats forced the family to live in seclusion, said the paper last year.
His wife of more than a decade legally adopted the kids.
Now, the two are headed toward divorce and want the court to decide who will keep the children.
Thomas Beatie alleged domestic violence in court, while Nancy Beatie said her husband is doing everything he can to make her struggle.
The problem facing the Arizona judge is whether the union is a same-sex marriage, based on Thomas Beatie's transgender status. If that's the case, the state of Arizona doesn't recognize same-sex unions and a divorce may not be granted.
A decision by the court is expected later this month.
