Chelsea (born Jonathan) was shocked to discover her boyfriend Craig wanted a sex change… and now she’s a woman called Carla
When Chelsea Jade – formerly known asJonathan (bottom right) – met a man willing to accept that she had been born a boy, the 28-year-old thought she’d hit the jackpot. But just months into their relationship, her new boyfriend Craig (the couple, both British, are pictured together, top right) would be forced to make a startling admission – that he also wanted to become a woman.
Chelsea met car salesman Craig last year and believed she had finally found the chance to have a ‘normal life’. Despite knowing she was transgender, Craig was keen to begin a relationship and the pair quickly hit it off. But five months later Chelsea found a series of alluring photos that Craig had uploaded to a dating site, showing the 24-year-old in high heels and short skirts. Initially Craig played the pictures down – dismissing his cross-dressing as a sexual fetish. But a few week later he revealed a secret that he had kept to himself since the age of eight – that he wanted to live as ‘Carla’. The unconventional couple (pictured together as Chelsea and Carla, left) are now planning their wedding and looking forward to a happy life together.
