Thomas Beatie has also written a book about his life, "Labor of Love," but he claimed that money has never been their motivation.
"We've turned down about $2 million altogether from people wanting to do all sorts of things with us," Beatie said. "But as far as, you know, doing it for the fame, I have to say I'm infamous. I mean, who wants to be unpopular, controversial and despised?"
But the notoriety has not stopped them from adding to their family. Nancy Beatie inseminated him again.
The Beaties are already telling Susan about the unusual circumstances of her birth. Thomas Beatie said he reads his daughter, whom he calls "Sweetpea," the Eric Carle book "Mr. Seahorse," a children's picture book that shows how male sea horses carry their offspring.
"And I point to the picture at the end of the book where Mr. Seahorse has his babies and say, 'This is what I did with you, Sweetpea, and you're just that one special sea horse,'" he said.
"I just wish that people could be more tolerant to different types of families," Nancy Beatie said. "And I want them to know that we love each other, and we're going to love this baby."
