It was announced the previous year that Diane and Fernando are expecting a baby. The baby was born this June and it’s named Caraote.
The case isn’t a normal one, though. As the one who gave birth is Fernando.
Born in Ecuador, Fernando Machado was brought up in a place where being a transgender is not an easy thing. Although, he has not underwent a gender reassignment surgery yet, he lives his life as a woman.
Diane Rodriguez was Luis previously and she never thought that being a mother was made for her. She never imagined herself being a mother as she is transsexual and the law there demanded that if you want to be recognized as a woman, you need to be castrated.
Diane also works in the LGBT community and is a prevalent activist. She has been vocal regarding the transgender rights. Plus, she was also the first
transgender candidate to run for Congress.
Meet the adorable Caraote.
Fernando said in an interview with BBC that when they finally realized that they are having a baby. It was the most beautiful moment.
The couple met in 2013 through Facebook.
Married on August 2015, the couple was hitting the headlines for the pregnancy news.
