Friday’s episode of the ‘WE tv’ show ‘Extreme Love’ is set to run a profile on Stephen, who is gay, and his transgendered boyfriend Wyley, who found themselves expecting their first child together when Wyley became pregnant.
The couple met on the gay dating app ‘Grindr’. In a promotional video for the show, Stephen says he was attracted to Wyley’s profile, which read, “Country boy, loves animals, vegan.”
The two live in a converted bus in a mutual friend’s backyard.
“I am a man and I am actually pregnant,” Wyley said. “This pregnancy was definitely not planned, absolutely not.”
Wyley “identifies as a trans-gender male” but has not undergone sexual reassignment surgery, leaving Wyley’s female genitals intact — something that allegedly turned off potential mates.
“Every guy that I’ve dated in the past was, or they were all ok with it up to a certain point, probably up ’til about where we became physically intimate,” Wyley said.
“I found out I was pregnant at 11 weeks,” Wyley recalls. “After I took the test and it popped positive, I was nervous, I was very emotional. I started crying. I did not know what to do.”
The couple has not determined what to do with their upcoming offspring, and say they are considering giving the baby up for adoption.
Stephen said, “As a gay person, I don’t think I ever planned for biological children.”
The episode runs Friday, January 4th on ‘WE tv’ at 9 p.m.
