Izaak Theo Adu recently posted an Instagram photo wearing Burberry as he continues to pursue his modeling career with support from his mother, Sade.
There is no doubt that Sade Adu has been any less of an amazing mother to her son in the past years, especially after he came out to her as transgender and hoped for her support in the transition process.
Izaak Theo Adu, whose birth name is Mickailia Adu, has since become a model and walked the runway alongside the likes of Kendall Jenner, the Hadid sisters, and many others.
MAN IN BLACK
Recently, Izaak took a trip down memory lane and shared a throwback photo "[feeling] like a king" in designer Burberry clothing, which he previously modeled for during a runway show.
The handsome model looked dapper and sophisticated in an all-black Burberry ensemble, including a long coat, pants, leather gloves, shoes, and a black leather bag.
The photo taken by Davit Giorgadze seemed to be taken beside a big black truck, which showed the 24-year-old's reflection, while parked on the side of a rocky mountain road.
SUPPORT FROM SADE
Izaak first came out as transgender in 2016 through an Instagram announcement. Throughout the model's journey, his mother stood by and supported him in every way possible, and for that, he is eternally grateful.
Recently, the couple celebrated their first anniversary with a sweet tribute to each other.
"Thank you for staying by my side these past 6 months Mumma," he wrote. "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 gave me."
Izaak's transition to becoming a man began with hormonal intakes to produce more masculine features. He later underwent a breast removal surgery to create a flat chest like that of a male's.
Last year, Izaak furthered his transition with phalloplasty surgery, fully transitioning his body from a woman to a man. He revealed that gender reassignment surgery was emotionally and physically draining.
Sade's son initially wondered why he had to go through such to be the man he is but realized that the difficult road leads to a path where he is destined to be.
LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST
Izaak has been living his life to the fullest since and documents milestones on Instagram. As seen on his profile, the model found love and is in a romantic relationship with Emily, a hairstylist.
Recently, the couple celebrated their first anniversary with a sweet tribute to each other. Izaak shared a panoramic photo of himself sitting on a railing alongside a caption that professed his undying love.
Similarly, Emily dedicated a post to her beau, featuring several photos from their vacations and random days together, revealing that they met through Instagram.
