Singer, Sade Adu's transgender son, Izaak, recently got engaged to his girlfriend, and the two lovebirds took to Instagram to show off their lovely rings.


In a recent Instagram post by Izaak Theo Adu, he shared an up-close picture of his hand, gently holding up his girlfriend's hand as they both showed off rings on their index fingers.

The black and white picture also featured cute little tattoos on his girlfriend's fingers. In his caption, Theo spared no words in showing love to his beau. Izaak started the caption by expressing how much he loved his lover before going on to add,

"Thank you for showing me your heart and soul and allowing me to protect them in this life. The purest light, my moon ? ♥️ #IBIDYOUADU."


Theo's engagement news garnered several reactions from his fans who flooded the comment section with congratulatory messages. One user wrote:

"Congratulations? Wishing you both lots of love, health, happiness & laughter always. ??."


Another follower wished the couple goodwill while a third user excitedly added: Beautiful! Congratulations!!?" In a separate post, Izaak's girlfriend named Emily Margaret shared the same picture earlier posted by her boyfriend while adding a sweet caption to him.

Izaak was born Mickailia "Ila" Adu in 1996 to Sade and Jamaican music producer Bob Morgan.

Emily started the caption by revealing that they would be getting married on October 13, 2020. According to Magaret, she never believed people were made for each other until she met Theo.


The lovestruck lady explained how she felt safe and loved by her partner while adding that she was honored to be sharing life with him. She sweetly concluded by writing:

"You have always been my light, even before I knew you, you were my light. I can't wait to share our love with all those we love most ? #IBIDYOUADU."

In 2016, Izaak came out to publicly identify as a transgender person, and in 2019, he went through a gender reassessment surgery.


His surgery was followed by a six-month-long recovery during which he shared a post to thank his mother, Sade Adu, for supporting him during his transition journey.

Interestingly, Theo had belonged to the LGBTQ long before coming out as a transgender person. Before 2016, the young teenager publicly identified as a lesbian.

Izaak was born Mickailia "Ila" Adu in 1996 to Sade and Jamaican music producer Bob Morgan. Unlike his famous mother, Theo is a regular user of Instagram where he has continuously shared his transgender journey with fans.
