A British woman got quite the surprise when she found out her boyfriend was actually born a girl.
The woman is Charlotte Urie, a 20-year-old barista from London. Back in 2012, she had been dating her boyfriend, Kieran Moloney, 23, for a month when he told he told her his secret.
Kieran was born a girl, but he knew he was meant to be male ever since he was 4 years old.
At 16 years old, he was diagnosed by a therapist as a transgender person. Kieran then underwent hormone therapy and at age 20, he had a double mastectomy.
He began a rigorous exercise routine and is now a muscular man who enjoys drinking and soccer and the like. Prior to getting intimate with Charlotte, Kieran knew he had to tell her the truth.
He was nervous because other girls had not accepted his differences. But, Charlotte embraced them.
Kieran sat me down and said he had something to tell me. He then blurted out that he’d been born a girl called Ciara. I was so surprised. He was so manly. I never had any suspicions.
Kieran was really nervous and told me he’d understand if I just wanted to be friends. We talked it through for hours. I knew I still loved him and wanted to be with him. It didn’t matter he’d been born a girl.
Naturally, Kieran was relieved and elated. He said,
So many girlfriends before had been embarrassed by me and I didn’t want any more rejection. I felt such a connection to Charlotte and I didn’t want her to end the relationship, so when she reacted like it was nothing, I felt so relieved.
Finally, I met someone who liked me for me.
A couple of months later, the lovebirds moved in with one another. Two years later, they’re now planning on getting married and starting a family.
They hope Kieran’s best friend will act as a sperm donor so they can have a child of their own.
It’s a shame this sort of thing is still considered news today.
Hopefully, in the near future, there will be no stigma attached to anything related to transgender people. I’m glad to see there are couples out there who have overcome these insignificant differences.
