Soul singer Sade’s only child has come out as a trans man.
Ize Adu made the announcement on his Instagram, a rare step considering the family are famously private about their personal lives.
‘Today is the first day of the rest of my life,’ he wrote on the Instagram post, followed by needle and sun emojis and the hashtags #yaaassss and #proud.
The 20-year-old is the only child child of singer Sade Adu and producer Bob Morgan.
While Sade has yet to comment on her son’s transition, it appears like he is being supported by the people around him.
It comes after Warren Beatty made his first public act of support for his transgender son Stephen.
Academy Award-winning actor Warren Beatty has called his transgender son his ‘hero’.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, the Bonnie Clyde star said of him: ‘He’s a revolutionary, a genius and my hero’.
