Sade's transgender son got married in a beautiful Hawaiian ceremony in April. Catch a glimpse of his big day from photos shared on his social media.


Izaak Theo, son of legendary soul singer Sade Adu, married his long-term girlfriend Emily Margaret Shakeshaft last month. Though unconventional, the ceremony was everything a wedding should be.

The lovebirds tied the knot in Hawaii, taking a big leap away from the traditional wedding. Images shared on Izaak's social media give fans a better glimpse of what the couple's nuptials looked like.

In the first post, Izaak and Shakeshaft were captured standing hand in hand in two polaroid pictures. The couple donned matching blue outfits while posing next to a field.

Izaak shared the snapshots alongside a sweet caption declaring his love for Shakeshaft while referencing their special day. He wrote:

"Mr and Mrs Adu-Watts. 04.16.21. An unforgettable day, I love you my girl 🤍."


A separate post included an up-close picture of the couple snuggling up against each other as they laid in a field. Here, Shakeshaft matched her red lipstick with a red flower tucked behind her ear.

A recently shared post captured Izaak and Shakeshaft posing with their backs turned to the camera while standing at a beachside. The couple was still clad in their matching blue outfits.

Sade sees a kindred spirit in Shakeshaft, one who is funny, beautiful, and an independent thinker.


The couple ditched their blue outfits for the nighttime celebration of their big day, opting for yet another matching outfit—but this time, in white.

A post on Izaak's Instagram saw him and Shakeshaft locked in a sweet kiss while another captured them lovingly staring into each other's eyes.


Shakeshaft was clad in a silky mini dress with a garland around her head. She paired the outfit with white strappy heels stopping right above her ankles.

Izaak, on the other hand, opted for a pair of khaki shorts and a short-sleeved white shirt. He topped off the ensemble with black shoes and a flower garland hanging around his neck.


Shakeshaft's love story with Izaak began in 2019 when she reached out to him on social media after discussing his difficulties transitioning from female to male.

The pair would go on to forge a friendship before starting a relationship later that year. In May 2020, Izaak finally proposed to his beau. Sade sees a kindred spirit in Shakeshaft, one who is funny, beautiful, and an independent thinker. A perfect match for her perfect son.
