Both Minh Anh and Minh Khang are transgender persons. They met and fell in love with each other at a contest several years ago. They agreed to marry and their wedding was held in 2017, grabbing local media headlines.

Yearning to have a baby, Minh Khang decided to stop the hormone therapy to regain menstruation. He followed obstetricians’ advice on a well-balanced pre-pregnancy diet in hopes of getting pregnant.
