Trystan Reese and Biff Chaplow from Portland, Oregon, are expecting their first biological child together. The two fathers are parents to two children whom they adopted but always longed to have a child biologically. Now, Reese, who was born a woman, has conceived. Read on to learn more about this couple’s inspiring journey.


Reese got pregnant in 2016 but suffered a miscarriage at six weeks. The devastating loss was heartbreaking for the couple, who vowed to wait one year before trying to conceive again. However, restarting testosterone and then going off of the hormone to conceive could cause complications, so the couple decided to try again right away.
