Transgender man gives birth to baby girl after Grindr one-night stand and now wants more children before having full gender reassignment surgery

Share This

A transgender man became pregnant while transitioning after having a one-night stand with a man he met on Grindr.

Ash Patrick Schade, 28, from Huntington, West Virginia, had been two years into transitioning and was taking testosterone and estrogen blockers when he discovered he was pregnant in February 2020, following a Grindr hook-up. 

"It had never occurred to me that I could get pregnant whilst on testosterone and estrogen blockers, as it's such a rare occurrence," Ash explained.

After finding out he was pregnant, Ash, a mental health worker and PhD student, stopped hormone treatment to allow him to carry a child. 






A month after finding out he was pregnant, he met his now husband Jordan, 28. 

His daughter Ronan was born in October 2020

The couple are raising one-year-old Ronan together and Ash, who underwent top surgery to remove his breasts after the birth, says he is holding off on having full gender reassignment surgery so they can have more children together.

Ash, who was previously married to another man, explained: "I was going through a rough time from 2019 and 2020 and struggled with my mental health due to going through a divorce.

"I ended up going on Grindr hook-ups and accidentally fell pregnant 

"It was a huge shock, but I fell in love with my bump and pushed through the pregnancy, despite struggling with the dysphoria and medical risks."

Ash said he "felt like he was in the wrong body" for "as long as he could remember" and was sent to conversion therapy by his parents as a child, in the hope it would "fix" him.  

"I hid my boobs and identified as a boy at school and went by Ash, and wore gothic dark clothes as a way to hide how I looked," he recalled. 

"Until one day, my mother, who does not wish to be named, sent me to school in a pink two piece for picture day and my teacher loudly declared that I was actually a girl called Ashley.
