Deeply in love Charlotte Urie was convinced she finally found her one true love until she discovered his deepest secret- he was born a girl.
The 20-year-old says she was shocked to hear her boyfriend’s deepest secret because he looked so “manly”.
Wellington born Kieran Moloney was born a female called Ciara. At 16, he was diagnosed as transgender and at 18 he began having monthly testosterone injections. At 20, he had a double masectomy.
Now 23, Mr Moloney says telling his girlfriend after one month of dating was terrifying.
He started to bind his breasts with sports tape and spent £20 a week in a bid to conceal any hint of being a female. Gradually his cup size dropped from a B to an A.
Moloney who is originally from New Zealand, but now living in London had kept his sex-swap deal secret until he met his sweetheart sometime in 2012.
“He’s very masculine and has a perfect body of a man. I’ve never had any concerns about dating someone transgender, biology doesn’t matter,” Ms Urie said.
A few weeks later the couple became intimate for the first time. Two months later they moved in together.
Mr Moloney is yet to have full gender reassignment surgery, but the couple say his physical gender doesn’t get in the way of them enjoying a healthy sex life.
The London-based couple, who have been together for two years, are planning to start a family using the sperm of Mr Moloney’s best friend.
