Oregon, USA: A hunky transgender man is hoping to start a family with his wife using a sperm donor.
The 27-year-old male model and his wife Jenilee, 30, are reportedly planning to have children together and the heart throb aims to star on the front of Men's Health.
Jenilee, 30, said: “I’m so proud of Aydian and what he’s achieved, and I love being able to call him my hubby.
“People are genuinely shocked when they find out he was born a girl.

“When I introduced him to my family, they didn’t even realise until I told them.”
Hundreds of testosterone-fuelled models with chiseled jaws and six pacs have applied to a competition to front the prestigious magazine.
Leading the pack is Aydian with 56,000 votes, who is hoping to make history as the first transgender male cover star.
Competition judges are searching for "a guy who is fit and fearless, a doer who gives back and leads by example."
And married Aydian, who made headlines across the world by recreating the naked Adam Levine photo, believes he fits into all of the categories.
The bearded and tattooed hunk told Buzzfeed: "The goal was to get on the leader board to raise awareness. That was the initial goal: Make a statement, get a trans man on the cover. That was it!"
Aydian, from Oregon, US, made a video on YouTube which quickly went viral, propelling him to the top of the leaderboard.
He is now some 45,000 votes ahead of second placed candidate Brian Taylor.
Aydian added: "If a little kid sees a trans guy on the cover of this magazine and he identifies as trans, he can say, ‘Hey, I can live.'
"It’s those little things that make people aspire to something. I really feel that maybe if I had seen that and knew the word ‘transgender’ when I was 12 or 13, maybe I would have identified quicker."
In his post on the Men's Health website he stated: "As a Transgender Male, having a healthy body and mind is my ultimate goal to find peace within my soul.
"Although I may always have some kind of battle with my body, I continue to work everyday for a happy peace within."
