You might recall a story a couple of months back about a San Antonio couple who were expecting a baby — although amid unusual circumstances.

In short: Wyley, a transgender male, became pregnant courtesy of Stephan, a gay man.

What's the background?

Wyley — who was born female — had been on testosterone treatments and sports a beard, deeper voice, and has had breast-removal surgery. But Wyley still possessed a vagina.

Stephan learned about Wyley's female genitalia after the couple met on the gay dating app Grindr, and their relationship proceeded anyway — but the lingering question was, "Can Wyley become pregnant?"

The answer, the couple thought, was "no" due to Wyley's testosterone treatments.

But then Wyley started experiencing "morning sickness" and then learned of the pregnancy at 11 weeks — a circumstance that "definitely was not planned," Wyley said, adding that "I am a man, and I am actually pregnant."

The transgender male pregnancy became the subject of an "Extreme Love" episode about the couple.

And then

Now Wyley Simpson and Stephan Gaeth — who revealed their last names for a KENS-TV report — have a baby they've named Rowan Fox.

"I've always wanted to be a father," Simpson told the station. "And even though it happened this way, and wasn't planned, I was just like, 'Let's do it.'"

Gaeth told KENS he hadn't planned to be a parent so soon but did his best to prepare for it.

"I was really unsure. And then ... it felt right, and it felt better as we talked about it," Gaeth added to the station. "We did a lot of talking, a lot of preparing. We went to prenatal yoga together, we watched a lot of videos online, and figured out our birth plan together."

The couple told KENS that Rowan is easygoing and likes to eat a lot.

What's next?

Simpson and Gaeth added to the station they first will visit family and then travel the country.

"It used to just be about our schedule ... but he runs the show now," Simpson told KENS, pointing at Rowan.
