Is it me - or is this just weird?

I saw this story on Faded Youth Blog tonight...

This is weird, right? The story is very romantic and he obviously loves his wife dearly but still weird, right? I wonder if they make maternity clothing for men? Will he have a baby shower? I'm guessing he won't be visited by the lactation specialist in the hospital. I didn't see the Oprah show but I wish I had. I'll bet it was interesting and after watching it I probably wouldn't be saying it was weird. But it is weird, right? Or is it me?
The 34-year-old father-to-be, who was born a girl and still has those reproductive organs which is how he is able to carry a baby. He began the process of transitioning to a male, taking testosterone, having his breasts surgically removed and changing all important documents from F for female to M for male. He married his longtime girlfriend Nancy (whom he met when he was still Tracy), but she couldn’t get pregnant after having had a hysterectomy due to endometriosis. Through insemination with donor sperm, he’s now pregnant with a daughter due in July.
