Nigerian-born British singer Sade Adu’s transgender son, Izaak Theo, has penned a beautiful message to his mother for her support through his transitioning process from woman to man.

Theo had spent the past six months recovering from his phalloplasty surgery. Phalloplasty is the construction or reconstruction of a male private part and it is a common surgical choice for transgender and non-binary people interested in gender confirmation surgery.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Theo, who was originally born as a girl and known as Ila Adu, started his transitioning process in October 2016 after he discovered he wanted to become a man and not a woman.
