Cradling 15-month-old Trinity-Leigh, Hayden said: “I have almost the perfect life.

“I’m a single dad to the most amazing little girl.

“After the next op I will finally feel like I can get on with the life I should have always had.”

The breast removal, which will have cost the NHS around £5,000, took place in June. His final operation comes next year at a cost of around £19,200, including support as well as the surgery.

The Sun revealed last year that Hayden had impregnated himself with sperm from an anonymous donor he met on Facebook. Trinity-Leigh was born in June 2017.

Hayden said: “All I ever wanted was to be a parent. It has been everything I imagined it would be.

“She is such a happy little girl, very cheeky. It is me and her against the world now.”

His only fear is that the sperm donor may one day try to claim partial custody.

Hayden impregnated himself with using a syringe with sperm from the anonymous donor after they got in touch over a group on the social media site.

The former Asda worker added said: "I am worried that he will come and try to see Trinity-Leigh, it may not be now, but it is always a fear in my mind that it could happen down the line.

“I actually know someone who know him and he knows who I am and that I have had Trinity-Leigh - I guess because it has been in the papers as well.

“I am keeping myself to myself and looking after her, if he tries to get in touch then I will just say there is no way he is having anything to do with her."

The ex-Asda worker, from Gloucester, has legally lived the past six years as a man but while pregnant stopped taking the male hormone testosterone in case it harmed the baby.

Docs have since cleared him to resume the medication.
