Nigerian-born British singer Sade Adu’s transgendered son, Izaak Theo Adu has finally completed his transition from female to male, after undergoing phalloplasty.
Izaak Theo Adu, born Mickailia “Ila” Adu, has spent the past six months in recovery after undergoing phalloplasty surgery, the reconstructive procedure typically undergone by transgender and non-binary people.
Theo started his transitioning processing in October 2016, when he discovered that he did not want to continue living his life as a woman.
Shortly after returning home after the successful surgery, he shared a picture of himself hugging his mom with the caption: “It’s been a long hard road but We did it!! We are coming home!!!! .
Praising the iconic singer for her unwavering support, Izaak wrote:
“It’s been a long hard road but We did it!! We are coming home!!!! Thank you for staying by my side these past 6 months Mumma. Thank you for fighting with me to complete the man I am. Thank you for your encouragement when things are hard, for the love you give me. The purest heart. I love you so much. Queen of queens ♥? #mumma #lioness #queen#iloveyou.”
Izaak, who is Sade Adu’s only child from her former relationship with reggae music producer Bob Morgan, came out as transgender in 2016. It was on National Coming Out Day.
