An unidentified German transgender man gave birth to a baby earlier this year after using a sperm donor to become pregnant.

The man, who was born with female reproductive organs, is the first transgender man to have a baby in Europe, according to the Mail Online.

He delivered the baby at home with the help of a midwife to avoid being identified as a “mother” on hospital records.

“The person in question did not want to appear as a mother but as a father on the birth certificate and that request has been honored,” a spokesman for the Berlin Senate Administration said.

For years, the man has reportedly been taking hormone therapies so he can change sexes.

The baby, who was born in March, is a boy and officially has no mother, just a father.

This is the first recorded time a transgender person has had a child in Europe, but in the U.S., Thomas Beatie, a transgender man, has had three children.
