When did hayden and milo start dating
They bought a batch of sperm from an anonymous donor, before choosing to use intrauterine insemination, placing the sperm inside Amy's womb for fertilisation.
But, sadly, three weeks later, the pregnancy test was negative.
As Chris - who was born Christina - was a pre-op transgender male at the time, they initially hoped that Amy could be the biological mother.

For me it was an amazing experiencing.'But Chris insisted he did not want to breastfeed.
And, eventually, he became more masculine and lived as a man.'Chris was my soul mate. It didn't matter what he looked like.'Cementing their love with a civil partnership in October 2012 and legally married in 2013, when the law changed, the couple were keen to have children.

Amy confessed: 'When Chris was pregnant it was really difficult, because I always thought I would be the one to carry our children.
It was definitely a strain and it was difficult.'And while Chris started to experience the physical signs of pregnancy - he was constantly sick and his belly and breasts grew – his changing hormones strangely made his natural goatee beard grow thicker and more prominent.'Some days, he looked like a man with a beer belly,' Amy joked.
Being pregnant was also a confusing time for Chris.
He understood what I was going through, what I was feeling.
