Photos: Sade Adu's transgender daughter completes transition from woman to man

Sade Adu

Sade Adu’s transgender son has shared a heartfelt message to praise his mother for her support as he completes his transition from female to male.

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.

At the time, he described the process as "trying, tiring, painful, emotionally exhausting, physically exhausting, uncomfortable."

After returning home to his family, Izaak shared a photo of him hugging Sade, 60, along with a message 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."
