R. Kelly & Andrea Kelly's Youngest Child Reveals Transgender Journey

According to TheYBF, Jay (Jay) Kelly, the youngest child of Hollywood Exes star Andrea Kelly and ex-husband R. Kelly, is speaking out about plans to transition from female to male. Born 13 years ago as Jaya Kelly, Jay (on Instagram as @mi_ylno_namuh) talks about his journey and transition on Ask.fm where he answers questions from anonymous users.  From his answers, we've learned that he's identified as a boy since he was 6 or 7, his mom Andrea is VERY supportive, his big sister shows him love and support by calling him "handsome".  But (as of 3-months ago), R. Kelly is unaware of his child's new identity, according to In Touch Weekly. Also, he still has "female" organs and wears a chest binder, but plans to take testosterone and have gender reassignment surgery.
Jay on Andrea: “[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much. She was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.’
Jay on his sister: “And same with my sister, she told me that she was proud of me, and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that, so you know it was great for me.”
Jay on his transition: “I believe I am a boy and want surgery, and the medication to help me who I was supposed to be.”
Sidebar: So happy Andrea Kelly is a such a supportive mom.
