Following the birth Hayden now plans to return to complete his gender realignment as soon as possible.

The proud father was born a girl, Paige, 21 years ago.

He has been living legally as a man for more than three years and taking male ­hormones, giving him facial hair and a deep voice.

The cost of gender reassignment is £29,000 per patient, including support and surgery.

But Hayden was also desperate to have a baby.

Before completing his transition he asked the NHS to freeze his eggs in a £4,000 process in the hope he might have children years later.

But health chiefs refused.

When The Sun on Sunday exclusively revealed his pregnancy in January, Hayden, from Gloucester, said: “I faced the prospect of not becoming the man I’m supposed to be, physically, or a dad.

“So I didn’t feel like I had any choice but to have a baby now then get back to transitioning.

“In September I got pregnant by a sperm donation.

“I found the donor on the internet.

“I looked on Facebook for a group and found one — it’s been shut down now. I didn’t have to pay.

“The man came to my house, he passed me the sperm in a pot and I did it via a syringe.”

Hayden Cross has no contact with the child’s biological dad and does not know his name.

He said at the time: “I found I was pregnant two weeks after the sperm was inserted.

“It was mixed emotions.

“I was happy but I also knew it would be backtracking on my transition.

“It’s like I have given myself one thing, but taken away something else.

“It’s a very female thing to carry a baby and it goes against everything I feel in my body.

“I was finally starting to become myself and become a man physically — but now my body is going in the opposite direction.” Read more from source
