A ‘trans man’ who recently went viral for being featured on the cover of Glamour UK has renewed controversy after announcing her new children’s book which will teach kids that males can give birth.

The book, titled In My Daddy’s Belly: The Miracle of Male Birth, is said to be “inspired by real life” and “follows the excitement and joy that two Dads have for their anticipated arrival of their new baby.” The author, Logan Brown, is a female who identifies as a “man.”

According to Bigger Picture Books, an independent LGBTQ+ publishing house, the book is “written in a way that is accessible to children of all ages and easy to understand, it gives some basic facts about transgender Dads giving birth and celebrates the miracle of life with colourful, bold illustrations and a wholesome story with the message that it doesn’t matter what your family looks like, as long as you are loved.”

Although not yet released, the pink-and-blue cover of the book has been highlighted on Brown’s instagram. The cover features two “men,” one of whom is wearing a shirt that reads “be kind,” while the other is rubbing their very pregnant belly. The top right corner of the book reaffirms it is targeted at very young children, showing a drawing of a baby sucking its thumb.

Brown, who is 27 years old and a child support worker, recently rose to notoriety after starting a blog called Up The Duff Man. On the blog, Brown provides information about her pregnancy and proclaims that it’s “perfectly normal…ish” to be a “pregnant man.”

Earlier this month, Brown went viral after being featured on the cover of Glamour UK for their Pride issue.

During the accompanying interview, Brown provided more intimate details about her life, including information about her relationship with her non-binary partner, Bailey Mills, her experience suffering from gender dysphoria, struggles with her sexuality, and how she fell pregnant despite being a ‘man.’

“One day, I had this really weird feeling; it was early in the morning, and Bailey was asleep. I took a pregnancy test, and it was positive. I’d been off testosterone for a while due to some health issues. It was like my whole world just stopped. That everything… all my manhood that I’ve worked hard for, for so long, just completely felt like it was erased.”

The cover and interview sparked widespread backlash and mockery on social media, with many users perplexed by Brown’s apparent effort to “normalize” something that was otherwise biologically impossible.

According to Glamour, two weeks after the interview, Brown gave birth to a baby girl named Nova. She is currently working on an autobiography about her journey as a “pregnant man.”
