Man Who Is The Father of 6, Married For 25 Years Admitted to Hospital for Kidney Stone, Discovers He’s a Woman [VIDEO]

A Colorado man who was admitted to the hospital for a kidney stone received surprising news when the nurse came back with test results revealing he was actually a woman.

Denver photographer Steve Crecelius said he’s felt a little different all his life.

“When I was about 6 years old, I started having these feminine feelings, but that was in the ’60s. Wearing my mom’s makeup, I thought I looked pretty,” Crecelius told ABC News.

So when he went to the emergency room five years ago, he wasn’t too shocked when the nurse told him she found traits of both genders in his ultrasound results.

He was intersex, meaning he had both male genitalia and internal female sex organs.

“The nurse is reading the ultrasound and says, ‘Huh, this says you’re a female,’ Crecelius said. “It was very liberating. I had spent so much energy after the age of 13 constantly evaluating how people looked at me and acted towards me.”

Steve, who now goes by “Stevie,” said his wife and their six children accepted his new identity right away.

“We told them individually. Some were in person and some weren’t,” Crecelius said. “Every one of them said, ‘We don’t care one way or the other. We love you for who you are and you’re still my dad.’”

Crecelius and his wife, Debbie, have been together for 25 years and she’s supported him every step of the way, including taking him to buy his first bra.

She told Crecelius, “You know, when I first saw you, I said to myself,  ’He runs like a girl.’”

“I think we were pretty good when she began to mourn the loss of her husband,” Crecelius said. “We worked through what we needed to. The concept of unconditional love is a larger story.”

Intersex is a term used to describe people who bear both external genitals and internal organs, such as testes and ovaries.

A person with the condition may have male genitals along with fallopian tubes and ovaries.

“The condition used to be called hermaphroditism, meaning that person can’t be identified as male or female,” Crecelius said.

According to the Intersex Society of North America, more than 1,500 children a year are born intersex.

For Crecelius, he hopes he can be an advocate for those born intersex and same-sex couples.

“I think of bullying, because I haven’t heard anyone talk about this. It’s important to talk about,” Crecelius said. “People need to be accepting and understand. I was born this way, and loving each other and supporting each other will always be the main factor in our household.”

LOL, this is a bunch of bull.. So we're suppose to believe for about 50 yrs (25 of them married) hes been walking around like a man, never ever went to the Dr. for a full check up or testing at all? Never felt a cramp (although he has suppose to have ovaries.)? And has been fighting this feeling throughout his life to about his middle age of adult hood? Then when he finds out, like a switch he just leaped into action?
HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA GTFOH!!! If it was that strong of a feeling as he says (the way many homosexuals proclaim) why wasn't he already following that path to homosexuality from simply going with his natural instincts or feelings a long time ago? BULL CRAP I tell ya..! This dude is bored with his life, has been wanting a change from it a long time and now got a reason to try something different. He sees that h*** stuff getting big and he wants in like all the rest. Its the new thing and right now the perks look sweet, hes no different from any other fruit cake that wants to be down. Its sad when people get to the point they just wanna be famous for something, wanna represent anything and then justify it by grabbing anything that could possibly be connected. Why would he jump straight to representing people that say they have been bullied? Now he wants to daam there be a spokes person for inter-sex and same-sex couples? "Lawd hav-is mercy".....Its sad, people lives are really that f**ked up...

@ Deborah, I understand that he was born like that and it's not his fault but I think what people want to know is that if he lived a male life as those years and looked like a male then why he choose to want to live a female life after he find out his condition instead of just keep living the male life like he have been living for all these years. Even though his family excepted him after the fact, they wouldn't had to make the choice to except him if he just found out about the condition and stayed a male (father) to them instead of dressing up as a woman and giving them two mothers. Now, it's up to him to choose how he wants to live his life and he choose to go from living the life of a male to living the life of a female. If my father found out some s*** like that happened to him, I would have no problem with excepting his condition but it would be kind of hard for me to except the fact that he want to all of a sudden live the life of a female. I think that's the problem most people have with this story.

All this is bulls**t, why after all these years because of an ultra sound this fool decides he wants to be a woman.  Obviously his engine still functioning as a dam man, for crying out loud the man have 6 pickney!  These people want to come out with these crazy excuses to lead these bizzare and insane lives and wants the public to have sympathy for them ,for flipping what.  He choose to be a woman because that is his desire not because of an ultrasound, not even the hormones because it is obvious that his male hormones are much stronger than the females, because all I see when I look at him is a dam male in a dress! All this gay and transgender nonsense...this world is surely coming to an end!

Comment by deborah rollerson on June 3, 2012 at 1:26am

In the old days the parents who knew their newborn were born this way  made a decision to have the newborn resexed...or chose which sex they desired the newborn to be...

Comment by deborah rollerson on June 3, 2012 at 1:23am

There is many, many people in this world born like that, it's f***** up that it took him all those years to find out when he should of been told when he was young. I'm pretty sure somebody in his family knew about his condition that could of broke the news to him. But the thing about this story that f***** me up and I didn't understand is the fact that for the 25 years he been married and before then he live the life as a boy and a man but the minute he find out that he is part male and part female he right away want to go out and buy bra's and live the life as a female instead of keep living the life of a male. It's great that he has a strong family that's backing him up in the news that he got but why not keep living the male life and taking care of your family like nothing changed. If you pay attention to the story you will see that he always wanted to be a female since he was a little kid by wearing his mother clothes and make up, now that he got that news he can just come right out and be the female he always wanted to be. I think he should of just stayed a male.

I couldn't begin to imagine what he felt throughout his life.  It's so good to hear that his wife and kids truly loves him/her for what they are regardless and not treat them as an outcast because of how they were made, which they had no control of.  It also goes to show they have very good character and they love him regardless.  That's what we all need true love and family that's there for each other.
