The first draft for the next major update to smartphone emojis could include a “pregnant man” as well as a gender-neutral “pregnant person.”
Emojipedia announced the potential inclusion of non-female pregnant emojis as “consistent gender options for pregnancy.”

“Pregnant Man and Pregnant Person are new, and recognize that pregnancy is possible for some transgender men and non-binary people. These are additions to the existing Pregnant Woman emoji,” the outlet explained.
If approved, the draft’s changes “will mean that nearly all emojis can have default a gender neutral option, with choice to use a woman or man where relevant.”
“A few exceptions remain, which are being reviewed, as per this Unicode Emoji Subcommittee report from 2020,” they explain.
A final draft of the Emoji 14.0 update, which includes things like a melting face, a slide, an evil eye, a tire, and a number of shaking hands of varying skin colors will be approved in September 2021.
