With her glossy brown locks, perfectly plumped lips and contoured cheek-bones, uber glam Kairah Kelly could easily be mistaken for global reality star Kim Kardashian.

Incredibly the 15-year-old from Middelsborough was born a boy called Tyler and spent years struggling with her gender.

Just a year ago Tyler realised he wanted to live as a girl and bravely revealed his feelings to mum Angela, 30, who was fully supportive.

Now Kairah, 15, is now living as a girl and models herself on reality star Kim.


Angela, who is married to baker Chris, 49, and has another daughter Lilliah, nine, says: “Kairah’s always been a huge fan of the Kardashians and looks fantastic as Kim. She’s brilliant with make-up and I often get her to do mine.

“She used to be so unhappy as a boy, now she’s enjoying life as a girl.

“Kairah’s been referred for gender identity treatment and hopes to have gender reassignment surgery in future.

"I’ll support her all the way and I’m so glad she’s finally happy.”
